I am proud to be running the Boston Marathon in April 2020 for Dream Big! The mission of Dream Big! is to empower young girls through sports and physical activities.
I was fortunate to have grown up playing sports, which played an integral role in helping me grow into the person I am today. Each of the sports I played throughout my childhood and into adulthood, taught me many valuable lessons, qualities, and characteristics, in which I firmly believe are learned on and off the field.
Dream Big! works to provide girls from low-income situations with the equipment, uniforms, sports attire, athletic footwear, program fees, training expenses, sports opportunities and the supplies they need to participate in sports and physical activities that contribute to their health, education and overall well-being. Over the past nine years these programs have had a direct impact on more than 42,000 girls and young women in need.
Throughout the next five months, the Dream Big! team, consisting of 22 runners including myself, will work to raise over $250,000 to change the lives of thousands of young girls. My personal goal is to reach $10,000. I hope that you will consider supporting this incredible cause through a donation to Dream Big! to sponsor my completion of the Boston Marathon. Poverty can severely limit a young girl’s involvement in sports and recreational activity, so join me in making a difference in the lives of these girls who are eager to get out there! I am appreciative of any support you can give.
Thank you for your generosity!
