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 foot wear. In April 2014 the Dream Big! Marathon Team, made up of 21 runners from around the world, will take to the start line of the Boston Marathon to help breakdown the economic barrier that currently prevents many girls from low-income families from participating in sports and physical activities.

Dream Big!, a Massachusetts based charity, works to provide low-income and homeless girls with 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.

Over the past three years Dream Big! has had a direct, positive effect on more than 3500 girls through equipment donations, program scholarships, sports clinics and the Dream Big! Leadership Conference for middle & high school girls.

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 150 girls 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.

    Thank you so very much to this amazing group of runners and each and every donor. You are making such a difference in the lives of thousands of girls in need. These past two weeks we purchased new uniforms for a basketball team, provided field hockey equipment to a new middle school team, sent 100 high school girls basketball team members to a Celtics game and did so much more.
