The Dream Mile has come a
long way since its inception in 1998. It has grown from being a small event
attended primarily by volunteers and friends to a permanent fixture on the
calendars of runners in the various cities in America. The increasing
participation and enthusiasm for this event just goes to show how strongly
people feel about the cause of underprivileged children.

Statistics like these can be disheartening at times and the task which
lies ahead can be intimidating. It was Margaret Mead who once said
“Never doubt if a small group of thoughtful committed citizens can change
the world. Indeed, it is the only thing that ever has”
And that’s what we believe in.
We believe that every action counts. Every gesture that can bring a smile to a
child’s face matters. So come join us and
