COVID-19 Programming

As COVID-19 continues to affect change within our community, the team at Dream On 3 has remained focused on our mission: to make sports dreams come true for kids with life-altering conditions. 

Throughout the pandemic, our team has been forced to alter our programming models which has resulted in exploring new and innovative ways to serve our Dream Kids. We have discovered that every cloud has a silver lining. Through the innovative ideas of our programming team, the dedication of our sports partners, and the loyalty of our corporate and individual donors, we have been afforded multiple opportunities to bring encouragement and hope into the lives of our Dream Kids. 

Our team will shift and adapt to the ever-changing health care crisis, but we are certain that if we continue to stay resolute to our mission and valuesdreams will continue to come true.
