A local child is dreaming big to bring hope to others in our area.

Chris Balsley, his wife and stepson, Dylan, are working to bring an organization to Zanesville called Jamie’s Dream Team. The team helps fulfill the dreams of people severely injured, suffering from illness or medical conditions. It’s Dylan’s dream to help others in our area.

"It’s suprising that his father and mother have taken the effort to push forth so much to help us assist with his dream of helping others dreams come true," said Jamie Holmes founder of Jamie’s Dream Team.

Jamie’s Dream Team is based in Pennsylvania and this April will host an event at Zane Landing Park. She attended City Council Monday night to gain support for the cause.

"No matter if we get from Pittsburgh to Zanesville to Texas wherever your money is raised that is where the money stays," said Holmes.

Jamie said she’s excited to see her work expand into Ohio. She presented Dylan with an I-pad so that he can work with her to create dreams.
