THE DAWN BRANCHEAU FOUNDATION’S DREAM BIG 5K
TO BENEFIT KIDS AND ANIMALS
Scenic Family Run and Community Service Featured for Third Annual Event
ORLANDO, Fla.—April 13, 2013—The Dawn Brancheau Foundation’s Third Annual Dream Big 5K, a family-friendly fun run, will be held Saturday, April 13, 2013, at 7:30 a.m. at SeaWorld Orlando. The run will be followed by community service projects that positively impact organizations the Foundation supports in the Central Florida area.
The Dream Big 5K is a scenic 3.1-mile fun run through SeaWorld. We invite the supporters of the Foundation’s mission to improve the lives of children and animals in need, inspire others to follow their dreams, and promote the importance of community service to form a team and ask your family, friends, and co-workers to join you.
During the run, Dawn’s inspirational music from her personal iPod will play throughout the park. Prizes will be awarded for the first three male, female and youth runners. In addition, a special route has been created for the Family Fun Walk. Strollers and baby joggers are welcome.
We are happy to announce that the proceeds of this year’s event will be used to refurbish our two adopted villas at Give Kids the World, fund a community garden at Edgewood Children’s Ranch, construct a new playground at Central Florida Children’s Home, build a new play yard at Osceola County Animal Services, and supply veterinary care and medicines to the dogs at Harbor House Paws for Peace Kennel and Orange County Animal Services.
All participants are invited to join our community service projects. Volunteers will remain in Sea Harbor Pavilion immediately after the event to assemble 500 “doggie adoption bags” for Osceola County Animal Services. We will then proceed to Give Kids the World to spring clean our Adopt-A-Villas and additional landscaping projects. Breakfast/lunch will be provided at GKTW. Lastly, please help up “Pack the Pick-Ups” by donating food items, individually packaged lunch snacks, toiletries, dog treats, and dog toys to enhance our community service projects.
Registration and packet pick-up will be held in the lobby of the Fairfield Inn & Suites at 10815 International Drive on April, 12, 2013, from 3 p.m.-7 p.m. Onsite registration on the event day begins at 6 a.m. with the run kickoff at 7:30 a.m.
