2017 Review

On behalf of Omar’s Dream Foundation, I would like to thank all of our supporters. Generous donations from donors like you all provide the financial and moral support needed to continue our mission and convert Omar’s Dream into a reality.

There are plenty of reasons for us to be thankful this year. Here are few highlights:

  • We celebrated the 5th anniversary of the foundation! 2017 turned out to be the best year yet. Words cannot express how grateful we are as an organization, for your support, kindness and generosity.
  • We held our 5th annual Dream Run at Hellyer Park. It turned out to be a beautiful day and all of you amazed us by showing up and supporting the cause with smiles and cheers all around. We could not have pulled off such an event were it not for the dozens of volunteers who worked tirelessly for months to make it possible. This year’s run was a huge success!!!
  • We have been blessed with tremendous sponsors. They are always eager to help us and with their support we have been able to keep our expenses under control. Please, support our sponsors. They are the best!
  • Every year we have seen participation in the annual run increase. This year was no different, we had over 500 runners. Thank you for taking time out to support our cause. We hope to see you again next year in October for our 6th annual run!
  • We have expanded our outreach to new hospitals, clinics and individual schools by educating them about the benefits of the Program. These efforts have allowed us to support even more children this year.

Thank you once again for your kindness and putting your trust in Omar’s Dream Foundation.
