BENEFITING: Dream Big!

ORGANIZER: Dream Big!

EVENT: 2016 Boston Marathon

Kelly Dagdigian

THE STORY:

Marking my 27th marathon by running for an organization I love - DREAM BIG!  This non-profit empowers underprivileged young women by giving them access to sports

Why sports?  because participating in sports at a young age helps boost confidence; instills a desire to make healthy life choices, stay off the streets, and become community leaders; and it decreases the likelihood of teen pregnancy.

Yet so many young girls still do not have the means or access to participate.  Others step on the playing field, court or track without the proper footwear, equipment, sports attire or training.  Poverty is limiting their ability to experience the true benefits of physical activity. 

Everyday, Dream Big! is helping to change this. Over the past 6 years Dream Big! has had a direct impact on nearly 20,000 girls in need through equipment donations, program scholarships, sports clinics and leadership conferences for young female athletes. 

I have had the opportunity to meet many of these girls and the positive impact on their lives is clear.  Those who may not have finished high school are enrolled in college athletic and academic scholarship programs.  Others are well on their way.  All have acknowledged the role that Dream Big! has played in changing their lives.

Your donation, regardless of size, will make a difference:

$35 will purchase a regulation soccer ball or basketball

$50 will purchase a pair a new pair of sneakers or cleats

$100 pays for an 8-week dance or fitness class for 1 girl

$200 pays for a new bike and helmet

$500 pays for a week-long summer sports camp

$1000 pays for new uniforms, equipment and training for an entire sports team

$2500 pays for physical education equipment for one full year for hundreds of children in an elementary or middle school

$10,000 pays for a new community based sports program for 100 female athletes.

Please consider making a donation to Dream Big! to provide access, confidence, and a future, to even more young girls.
