Bringing Central Florida Together for One Cause
Runway to Hope is honored to partner with Central Florida Diaper Bank for our families with children under three years of age. We ensure that our Runway to Hope families applying for assistance with our organization are able to care for their babies who are in need of diapers by referring them to this agency. The Central Florida Diaper Bank is changing lives from the bottom up and Central Florida’s only Diaper Distribution Network. Ensuring our families who have a child battling pediatric cancer have diapers for their children who need them is a huge relief and Central Florida Diaper Bank helps us do this!
Runway to Hope is a proud Agency of Duke Energy. When Runway to Hope grants financial assistance to a Duke Energy customer, this partnership allows us to place a guarantee on their account, which keeps their power turned on until we pay their bill via check in the mail. Unlike other utility companies, this partnership saves us time by not having to call to make the payment over the phone and we can avoid processing fees, since they will accept check payment. We are grateful to be an agency of Duke Energy and help keep the utilities turned on in the homes of children and families battling pediatric cancer!
Dobbs Funeral Home and Runway to Hope have partnered together to bring affordable and meaningful celebration of life to our families who lose a child to pediatric cancer. One of our Emerging Leaders Board Members, Brandon Dobbs, is one of the Funeral Directors and works directly with our families to support them during the worst days of their lives. Brandon has advocated for Runway to Hope pricing that is accessible and more affordable to our families who have already been severely financially impacted due to pediatric cancer. We are incredibly grateful to Brandon, not only for his dedication to our Emerging Leaders Board, but to our families whom he works tirelessly to help lay their precious children to rest with dignity.

In 2023, Runway to Hope was selected as one of 50 non-profits in the country to receive a Kentucky Fried Wish! Being chosen by the KFC Foundation means we are being recognized for our positive impact in the community. It also means they have provided the funding to continue on with our Toiletry Project which is providing pre-made emergency stay bags for families who are unexpectedly staying in on of our three Central Florida children's hospitals due to a pediatric cancer diagnosis.
Runway to Hope continues to look for ways to partner with other nonprofits in our community to align our missions in support of children in need in Central Florida. We are honored to partner with the Orlando Science Center to offer our children and families an escape from their pediatric cancer treatment.
