Gary\'s Run 4 Dreams to benefit the Sunshine Foundation Dream Village. 50 mile marathon in the Florida Keys. May 15th, 2010. Help Gary raise funds to make a dream come true for a seriously ill child. Donate Today!

This is year two of Gary's Run 4 Dreams, one man's quest to raise funds to support the dreams of the children of the Sunshine Foundation.

On May 15, 2010, Gary Batty will be running 50 miles from Marathon to Key West in the Florida Keys. Gary is doing this to help raise funds to provide dreams for children all across the United States. Thanks to the efforts of Gary and people like him, the Sunshine Foundation has been providing dreams since 1976.

You can be a part of Gary's fund raising effort. Right now, Sunshine Foundation has various sponsorship opportunities available. Depending on the level of support, you can receive mention on the web page, signs on the support vehicle, or logo placement on Gary's attire. Call Gail Dillon at 800-457-1976 for more information.

The Sunshine Foundation, the original wish granting organization founded in 1976, has been answering the dreams of chronically ill, seriously ill, physically challenged and abused children to give them hope and to escape from their everyday lives. Most of the children we serve wish to visit the Central Florida theme parks when asked the simple question: “If you could have one dream, what would it be?”

We fly the child and their immediate family to Orlando, all expenses paid, to enjoy a family vacation away from hospitals, needles and medical treatments. They enjoy Walt Disney World, SeaWorld and/or Universal Studios during each day, and then return to the Sunshine Foundation Dream Village at night to relax in their peaceful but magical cottage.

Opened in 1990, the Dream Village is a 22-acre resort nestled in a fairy tale setting and offers amenities and activities, all specially designed to be accessible for wheelchairs and other special needs. Each cottage has a unique and magical theme designed especially for children. We ask you to join us as we celebrate 20 years and over 20,000 children visiting the Dream Village! 

Call 800-457-1976 or Visit for more information.
