Hi Potential Volunteers,

Our BIG SPRING EVENT is the Belmont Bash. This event will be held at EQUI-KIDS in the indoor arena.

Toby’s Dream Foundation will create dream experiences for children facing an uncertain tomorrow that will allow them to continue believing in the possibility of a moment unencumbered and a life full of hope.

Not all children live the care free lives they deserve and, as a result, their capacity to dream becomes hindered by the news of an uncertain tomorrow. For some, their days become consumed with treatment and therapy, doctor’s offices and hospitals. These children face challenges that many adults would cower from and are able to do so with courage that inspires so many.
