Dream Big! is a caring non-profit organization that provides Sports equipment to low-income girls enabling them to participate in sports.

"We make a living by what we get. We make a life by what we give." Sir Winston Churchill

Giving is what Dream Big! is all about! a charity that provides low-income and homeless girls with sports and fitness 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 overall health, fitness and well being.

Dream Big! not only provides sports equipment to low-income girls enabling them to participate in sports they also, in doing so, give them the gift of confidence & self esteem that will last a lifetime. As noted on the website "active bodies active minds"...with both, I believe all things are possible!

I have two young boys who are active in sports and I truly see the connection between physical activity and their overall well being. I have always been active and smile thinking about my "team" experiences...the perfect wins, harrowing defeats, forgetful blunders and unconditional team unity.

On April 15th, I am so excited and honored to run my third Boston Marathon and with this team raise the much needed funds to allow Dream Big! to flourish and continue it's beautiful work.

All donations are tremendously appreciated! My goal is to raise over $4,000.00 for Dream Big!.

My thank you notes will be a photo of me crossing the finish line!!! In addition, as my "gift" any donation of $100.00 or more I will paint & mat an original 5" x 7" watercolor of your choice.

I'm going to know that when I cross the finish line not only will my life have been changed but I'll know that together WE have impacted many of others.

With open arms & heart I continue to Dream Big! and hope you can join me!

Training is going well! Just completed a 21 mile training run from Hopkinton to BC on 3/23! This created even more excitement for race day and a much needed confidence boost! Dream Big!
