The Dawn Brancheau Foundation Hosts “DREAM BIG 5K” at SeaWorld Orlando

by Staff

On April 16 The Dawn Brancheau Foundation is hosting the Inaugural “Dream Big 5K” at SeaWorld Orlando. The event also includes a one-mile family walk and a food collection drive. All food contributions and a portion of the race proceeds will benefit the Central Florida Children’s Home. The registration fee is $25 and participants can pre-register online at EpicSportsMarketing.com.

Participants are encouraged to bring child-friendly, non-perishable food items to help “pack the pickups” that will transport the food contributions to the Home that afternoon. After the delivery, Foundation members and volunteers will stay to complete several major projects on the Home’s property.

After the race, acknowledging Dawn’s passion for children and learning, SeaWorld Orlando’s education and pavilion area will be named the “Dawn Brancheau Educational Complex.”

Also on April 16 the Foundation will participate in the “Adopt-A-Villa” program at Give Kids the World. Foundation members and volunteers will spring clean the Foundation’s special villa and assist with the completion of other projects on the property.

Volunteers interested in helping at one or both events can sign up by e-mailing the Foundation at DawnsFoundation@gmail.com.

Dawn Brancheau’s passion for life and true love of others inspired the formation of The Dawn Brancheau Foundation. The Foundation inspires others to follow the principles Dawn held dear: follow your dreams, be active in community service and show compassion to others.
