Residents challenged to be a hero for a day

EVERY year the Reach for a Dream Foundation fulfils more than 1 200 dreams and touches the lives of more than 30 000 children across South Africa.

Now, they have invited everyone else to help inspire hope where it is most needed.

During these unprecedented times of the Covid-19 pandemic, the dreamers are more vulnerable than ever, and their need for inspiration to keep fighting a life-threatening illness has increased dramatically.

Now, more than ever before, these little heroes who are fighting real battles need everyday heroes to show support and inspire courage and strength through the fulfilment of dreams.

Be a hero for a day and join Reach for a Dream in partnership with Waterra Outdoor Adventures on Saturday, June 27 for their Hero Race: Be A Hero For Our Heroes.

“By fulfilling dreams, we believe that children can use their dreams to help them in their fight against illnesses, and to help them live a greater and more fulfilling life,” said Julia Sotirianakos, CEO of Reach for a Dream.

With this in mind, the foundation invites everyone – young and young at heart, fit and unfit – to participate in The Hero Race to show support to the dreamers and help raise funds for the fulfilment of dreams.

“We’ve seen some miraculous things happen once a child has experienced a dream,” said Mervyn Serebro, chairperson of Reach for a Dream.

“Doctors sometimes scratch their heads, and are unable to explain how a child has suddenly improved and at times gone into remission.”

Participants are encouraged to spread the word by nominating three friends or three families at R30 per person and share their photos on social media with the hashtag #beahero.
