Fox Rothschild Platinum Sponsor at Sunshine Foundation’s 9th Annual Walk for Dreams
PHILADELPHIA, PA – May 23, 2011 -The annual Walk for Dreams helps support the Foundation’s mission of fulfilling dreams for chronically or seriously ill, physically challenged and abused children ages 3 to 18. This year’s walk will help support the dreams of two children: Avery, 14 years old and diagnosed with severe autism, wants to swim with the dolphins at Discovery Cove; and Jackson, 9 years old and diagnosed with cerebral palsy and hydrocephalus, wishes to visit Disney World.
The Sunshine Foundation has been a client of Fox for almost 35 years. Martha (Frannie) Reilly, an attorney in the Corporate Department of Fox Rothschild, led the charge for the firm’s sponsorship and is a member of the Foundation’s Walk for Dreams Committee.
Kate Sample, president of the Sunshine Foundation, expressed her appreciation for Fox Rothschild’s support. “We are so grateful for this incredible commitment by Fox Rothschild to partner with the Sunshine Foundation to help bring joy and once-in-a-life time experiences to children with serious chronic conditions,” Sample said.
The walk will begin at 10 a.m. and travel through Tyler State Park on 101 Swamp Rd. in Newtown, PA. Interested walkers can register as individuals, groups or teams at www.sunshinefoundation.org. Those who wish to donate but cannot make the event can also contribute online.
Founded by veteran and retired Philadelphia police officer Bill Sample, the Sunshine Foundation has answered the dreams of more than 34,000 children and has 14 chapters throughout the country, most of which are located in the tri-state area.
