Dreams for Kids.........

is Doing an event called Embrace Race to raise money for Dreams for Kids.

(from their website) Dreams for Kids was founded by Tom Tuohy, at the request of his mother, Patricia Tuohy. Mrs. Tuohy was a single parent who dedicated her life to raising her four young children and to overcoming any adversity that would stand in the way of their personal welfare and path to independence.

Having given her children the opportunity to achieve their dreams, with one simple request Mrs. Tuohy would create a legacy of dreams come true for future generations of children searching for hope.

Dreams for Kids was born on December 24, 1989, in a small room inside a homeless shelter in Englewood Illinois, in a place called Clara's House.

These people like to have fun and help kids to feel accepted and in doing so change the way they see themselves. A hug can go a long way. So it is only fitting that two of their friends professional Soccer players, Ross Smith and Dean Ruddy will attempt to break the Guiness World Record for number of hugs in a 24 hour period and raise money for Dreams for Kids on June 1-2, 2007 in Chicago. They are challenging celebrities to help out. Here is their dream list of celebrities they want to hug.

Dean's Hug Goals:
1. Michael Jordan 2. Vince Vaughn 3. The Playboy Bunnies 4. Scarlett Johansson 5. Any or all of the Chicago Cubs

Ross' Hug Goals:
1. Rachel McAdams 2. Owen Wilson 3. Tiger Woods 4. Jack Black 5. Natalie Portman

Both want to hug Oprah!

Good Luck guys!
