Dreams Transform People's Lives

Since 2018, Charlie ROCKET's Dream Machine Foundation has been able to get homeless people off the streets, to help children with disabilities launch their dream business, help tornado victims rebuild their homes, and much more.

Millions of people in this world feel hopeless, stuck, or at rock bottom.

Charlie ROCKET was diagnosed with a brain tumor that almost killed him. For others, it’s when they are facing homelessness, battling cancer, or experiencing depression. In these moments, people lose sight of a vision for a better future. All they know is their struggle.

Charlie discovered that a dream can change everything.

At rock bottom, depressed, 305 lbs, and a brain tumor, there was one thing that kept him going: his dream of being an athlete. Over the course of the next 12 months, he ran 4 marathons, completed an ironman, lost 125 pounds, and reversed his brain tumor. His dream saved his life, and he is now dedicating the rest of his life to making dreams come true for others in need of a miracle through the Dream Machine Foundation.
