Chase Your Dreams Foundation is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization which strives to inspire a sense of dignity and re-fulfillment for those who have acquired a disability. We are here to provide the information and motivation to help re-spark the will to live and prove that life can be amazing and fulfilling even with a disability.
WHAT WE ARE ABOUT
Chase Your Dreams Foundation Provides a chance for people with a disability to experience something that they never thought they could due to certain limitations. It is our collective understanding that life and rehabilitation only get better with a positive mindset.
This foundation strives to promote a sense of dignity to those who may have lost themselves in a disability. The goal is clear, to overcome life’s obstacles and find fulfillment in our daily lives. With those goals laid out we can begin to search for ideas that will pave the road to bigger and better things. These ideas may include going skydiving, traveling to a remote location or even finding the means to get back in shape.
Whatever the goal is, we will strive to help conquer the fear and achieve a milestone.
One of the biggest obstacles with an acquired disability is what it does to the person on the inside. A person is often stripped of their natural rights of movement and ease of cognition when a disability has taken over. This ultimately has the greatest impact on wether an individual will fight forward or hunker down in the storm of disability. However, success has to have a beginning! That begining is a DREAM. That dream leads to a GOAL . And that goal leads to FULFILLMENT.
Chase Your Dreams Foundation began on the principles of learning from experience. However, we believe that experiences need to be great in order to have a great impact.
WHERE IT BEGAN
Chase Your Dreams Foundation was created by Chase Treadway on July 19, 2013. Founded on the principle of creating a positive mindset to promote progressive healing, Chase began a journey like no other. He learned through his volunteer experience that the biggest losses for people after an injury or illness are their dignity and the drive to live on. Reacquiring these traits must start somewhere, and that somewhere is a positive experience.
Through Chase’s own post-injury milestones he has learned that you can’t truly appreciate life unless you actually live life. As an adrenaline junkie he continues to strengthen his own appreciation through experiences such as skydiving and car racing, but has also learned to appreciate the everyday things like learning to drive a modified car, swim again and live independently.
By making a dream a reality, we inspire a sense of dignity and re-fulfillment into those who may have been dealt a disability.
