Founder, President and CEO Linda Sherrer is serving as the 2018 Dreams Come True 5K Corporate Chair.

Presented by the Kent and Christie Stermon Foundation, the 2018 Dreams Come True 5K event was inspired by the Jacksonville Association of Health Underwriters. Funds raised in the 5K event support Dreams Come True’s programs and services throughout the year. Founded in Jacksonville, Dreams Come True is the First Coast’s only local dream-granting organization dedicated to using the power of a dream to bring hope and joy to area children battling life-threatening illnesses.
Since 1984, Dreams Come True has fulfilled more than 3,700 dreams for children living in or being treated in Northeast Florida or Southeast Georgia. No child is ever denied a dream and no child is ever placed on a waiting list.
Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices Florida Network Realty is a dedicated Dreams Come True supporter. Over the past five years, the company has donated more than $175,000 to the nonprofit organization by contributing a portion of proceeds from every completed home sale. Additionally, team members have participated in numerous Dreams Come True events including Dream Day.
“The Dreamers (the children served by Dreams Come True) and their families are so brave and inspiring,” said Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices Florida Network Realty Broker/Executive Vice President Christy Budnick, who serves as Vice President on the Dreams Come True Board of Directors. “We are honored to support this incredible organization and help make dreams come true for many deserving local children. We encourage everyone to join us for the Dreams Come True 5K.”
The Dreams Come True 5K welcomes walkers, runners and rollers of all levels to participate. Individuals and teams are encouraged to sign up and create a fundraising page during registration.
