Our Founder receives the Association of Washington Generals’ Annual Washington State Community Service Award!

Leslie .Mayne, Founder and Director of the Permission To Start Dreaming Foundation, was honored to receive an award bestowed annually to individuals who have demonstrated exemplary service to the state and within their communities.

2015 Permission To Start Dreaming Prayer Breakfast re-broadcast now online! 

Full of powerful stories from the likes of retired SEAL TEAM 6 Senior Chief James Hatch and Army Infantryman Captain Josh Brandon, plenty of moving live music, and the interviewing prowess of Kenny Mayne, this was a Prayer Breakfast not to be missed.

Thank you runners, volunteers and sponsors!

We would like to thank everyone involved that helped to make our 5th Annual Race For A Soldier the best one yet! From the incredible weather to the amazing runners, it was a great day for a great cause!

Run for a Cause

Since our first event in 2011, thousands of runners have run for a cause in beautiful Gig Harbor. If you're ready for the long haul (the half marathon) or prefer a slightly shorter haul (the brand new 5K run/walk), this is an amazing event to be a part of.
