Celebrating 10 years…Yay!

This year we are back in California signing up Valley Children’s Place in Madera.

We have a new normal in place post pandemic. With the support of our sponsors and donors we have been able to bring joy in the lives of hundreds of kids. We will continue our journey and look forward to the next ten years.

We are back live this year for our 10th annual Omar’s Dream Run on October 16th in Hellyer Park, San Jose. Please join us as we celebrate our milestone birthday!

Covid impact continues…

We signed up a 2nd hospital in Arkansas. Arkansas Children’s Hospital in Little Rock. It is heartwarming to see kids benefitting from the program.

The need for remote education and connectivity is a part of the daily life. We are continuing to do our part to help out with all the requests.
