BENEFITING: Dream Big!
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 with out the proper footwear, sports attire or training.
Over the past seven years Dream Big! programs have had a direct impact on more than 30,000 girls in need through equipment donations, program fee scholarships, sports clinics, college showcases and the Dream Big! Leadership Conferences for middle and high school female athletes in urban communities.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.
Here are a few examples of the impact Dream Big! donations had this past year: Dream Big! donated over $250,000 in new sports attire, uniforms and athletic footwear to girls track, basketball, double dutch, volleyball and soccer athletes in urban communities; a donation of a volleyball net and equipment allowed a high school volleyball team to add a girls volleyball program to their school; Dream Big! Program Scholarships sent hundreds of student athletes to basketball college showcases, soccer and volleyball camps, dance classes and gymnastics lessons; 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.
Please join us in making a donation to Dream Big! Any donation, large or small will help us in changing the lives of so many inspirational girls and young women. Thank you!
