THE STORY:

Hello friends and family!!

I am beyond excited to be representing Dream Big! in my first ever marathon this April!

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.

Since I could kick a ball through my current post as Head Women's Lacrosse Coach at Emerson College, sports have been at the forefront of my life. I was afforded the opportunity to play every sport under the sun whether competitively or recreationally, an opportunity that I have often taken for granted. Being involved in sports shaped who I am today. I gained confidence and belief in myself, learned about teamwork, discipline, and leadership all while creating lifelong friendships, staying healthy, and having the best times of my life. Not to mention getting me to the career I am in today. 

When I learned about Dream Big! I knew this needed to be the charity team that I joined. This is my opportunity to pass along the amazing experiences that I have been lucky enough to have starting in town league soccer to hockey at Rivers to a lacrose state championship at Westwood High to a college career at Union College to coaching Mass Elite, Wellesley College, and now to coaching my own team at Emerson College. I am so excited to get raise funds that will directly go towards purchasing equiptment, training gear, uniforms and paying team fees. I know that most of you have experienced first hand the immense and immeasurable benefits of partaking in sports at some level, and I hope that you can see this program as a worthy charity to support in any way. 

Here are some suggestions to help Dream Big! continue to make an impact:

$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.

Thank you from the bottom of my heart for taking the time to look at my page. I hope you have been even a fraction as inspired by this program as I have been and will consider making a donation of whatever size you think you are capable of. Every little bit counts!

With so much love,

Kat
