Crissy Straub

THE STORY:

Dear Family and Friends,

On April 20, 2015 I will be running my 15th marathon at the Boston Marathon.  Not only am I super excited to be running my 5th Boston Marathon, but I am very excited to run this race as part of an amazing charity team-Dream Big! Having been involved with sports since I was a young child, I cannot imagine my life without fitness and athletics. The lifelong skills sports teach beyond the sport itself are immeasurable.  Patience, determination, focus, drive, and organization are benefits for a lifetime that come out of participation in sports.  As the mother of three young girls, I see the direct benefit paticipation in sports has had on my girls. From helping them to build self confidence, to learning about living a healthy lifestyle, I see nothing but good things that come out of being able to participate in sports.

Every day a girl in need steps on the playing field, court or track without the proper footwear, equipment, sports attire or training. Imagine trying to run the Boston Marathon without the proper footwear or training. In April 2015 the Dream Big! Marathon Team, made up of 16 runners from around the world, will take to the start line of the Boston Marathon to help breakdown the economic barrier that prevents thousands of girls from low-income situations from participating in sports and physical activities.

Dream Big! works to provide girls from low-income and homeless situations with the equipment, uniforms, 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 four years Dream Big! has had a direct impact on more than 10,000 girls in need through equipment donations, program scholarships, sports clinics and the Dream Big! Leadership Conferences for middle and high school female athletes.

See the breakdown of what your dollars can provide:

$35 - purchases regulation soccer or basketball

$50-purchases new pair of sneakers or cleats

$100- purchases 8 week dance or fitness class for 1

$200- purchases new bike and helmet

$500- pays for week long summer camp

$1000- pays for new uniforms, equip,training for a team

$2500- pays for phys ed equip for year for children in elementary/ middle school

$10000- pays for new community based sports program for 100 female athletes

Many thanks for your consideration in donating to this fabuous cause!

Be well,

Crissy
