THE STORY:

Dream Big! wrote -

Every day a girl in need steps on the playing field, court or track without the proper footwear, equipment, sprts attire or training. Imagine trying to run the Boston Marathon with out 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 breakdonw 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 andhome less situations with the 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.

Unfortunately, poverty can severely limit a young girl’s involvement in sports. Dream Big! is working to breakdown the financial barrier that currently prevents girls from participating. Here are a few examples of the impact Dream Big! donations had this past year: Donated basketball sneakers and uniforms helped to support two girls basketball programs and a soccer team who use sports to help girls suffering with trauma and abuse; a donation of a volleyball net and equipment allowed a high school volleyball team to have their first home game in two decades; Dream Big! Program Scholarships sent girls to basketball and volleyball camp and other girls took dance lessons throughout the year; 150 girls attended their first ever Celtics basketball game; hundreds of girls attended Dream Big! Sports Clinics in partnership with local college sports teams and the Dream Big! Leadership Conference brought together 220 female athletes from economically disadvantaged communities with former collegiate and Olympic female athletes, now community and corporate leaders, to hear about the impact sports had on their lives and about the college and career opportunities available to them.
