Friends & Family –
I am so excited to announce that I will be joining 21 other runners on April 20, 2020 as part of the Dream Big! Marathon team to help breakdown the economic barrier that prevents thousands of girls and young women from low-income situations from participating in sports and physical activities. I hope to raise $10,000+ to help impact more than 42,000 girls and young women in need.
The power of sport has played such an integral role in my life. I believe that being part of a team, working towards a common goal, helps to develop leadership skills, learn how to work with a diverse group of people and increase confidence. These tools, in addition to a wonderful support system has undoubtedly helped get me to where I am today.
Unfortunately, poverty can severely limit a young girl’s involvement in sports. Dream Big! is working to breakdown the financial barrier that currently prevents thousands of girls from participating. 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.
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 all so much for your support!!!
