Calling ALL Volunteers and Supporters!  HELP US honor the over 7,000 soldiers killed in action since 9/11.  Let their families know "we will NEVER forget!"

September 10th, 2016 @ 6:30 a.m. is the 5th running of the Hero's & Remembrance Run, sometimes called: "Boots on the Bridge." Dream of a Better World is back again in a big way.  This is a “no cost” event because these fallen service members, and their families, have already paid the ultimate price!  So, Dream of a Better World is stepping up to be a lead sponsor for our 4th year. We are raising money for flags, utilities and the drinking water necessary to hold this memorial event.

We need donations... if you'd like to help, just CLICK on the "Support Our Troops" DONATE button.  We also need volunteers from 6 a.m. until noon to help hand out water to the thousands of race participants. It will be an emotional, special day to honor over 7,000 fallen U.S. soldiers, killed in action since 9/11. Words can not describe the appreciation that we have for the dedication and unbelievable sacrifice of the men and women who's 7,000 + boots lined the Ford Island bridge.

This is our 5th year in partnership with Fisher House Hawaii, and our 4th as lead sponsor of this event. We could not be more proud to support our troops in this way. We recognize and honor each and very one of our military families... and know that:

We will NEVER forget!

Thank you Theresa Johnson and Anita Clingerman and the staff at Tripler Fisher House for pouring so much of your life into helping all of us remember those heroes who gave their lives for us and our country!   We will never forget the nearly 7,000 killed in action since 9/11!  The boots, the names and faces and the many tearful participants are forever etched in our hearts and minds.

For those of you who don't know, we have an on-going relationship with Tripler Fisher House and it is always a huge blessing to be apart of something so special, and to help our military families who have sacrificed so much for us.  This project was a huge success.  Last year, the kids of Dream of a Better World, with the help of a large army of classmates and neighbors and donors and volunteers, got to help put an American flag in every boot.  And, every boot had the name and face of a hero killed in combat since 9/11.

This really is a community event where hundreds of volunteers and many different businesses have reached out to help. All this is possible because of volunteers, from moms with babies in tow, to  students, civilians, veterans and service members from all branches. This is bringing everybody together.”

Thank you to EVERYONE for showing up and giving your support!
