Every child has a dream!
My foundation has been set up specifically to support the notion that every child should have the opportunity to chase their dream - to "Chase the Stars".
By supporting high quality programs and events that directly improve the well-being, health, and quality of children's lives, my foundation is working to make a difference for kids with the hope that they can achieve their dreams.
Founded in 2004, my foundation has defined its mission as making an immediate and positive impact on the lives of as many children as possible. And with support from its Gold Medal Supporters, Silver Medal Supporters, Bronze Medal Supporters and Qualifiers - as well as the many, many passionate and caring people at the programs, charities and events that "Chase the Stars" works with and supports - we expect to have plenty of success!
But there's more we need to accomplish to meet our goals. So see below or click on a logo/link to find out what we do, how we do it, and importantly - how you can help.
