I am so proud to announce I will be running the 2020 Boston Marathon for Dream Big!
Dream Big! works to provide girls from low-income situations with the 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.
I strongly believe I am the person I am today because of my participation in sports, soccer especially, at a young age. It built my confidence, taught me how to work as a team, and helped me become a leader in all aspects of my life. I truly believe that every single girl should have the opportunity to be part of a sports team no matter their financial situation.
Over the past nine years Dream Big! programs have had a direct impact on more than 35,000 girls in need through equipment donations, program fee scholarships, sports clinics, college showcases and the Dream Big! Leadership Conferences for middle and high school female athletes in urban communities.
As you support the 2020 Dream Big! Boston Marathon Team in their quest to reach the Boston Marathon finish line and their fundraising goals, please know that you are changing the lives of so many inspirational girls and young women.
Thank you so much for your support and I can't wait to see you out there on Marathon Monday!
