The Dream Mile is Vibha’s Flagship fundraiser, with an anticipated participation of 5000+ patrons across the world. This year the race will be held in person at various cities in the USA, India and also virtually.
The funds raised through the Dream Mile go towards supporting child development projects in India and the USA – education & food security, post COVID-19 relief efforts, orphan support etc. In addition it will support local beneficiaries of the Dream Mile host cities like the Children’s Hospital of Atlanta, Communities In Schools Chicago, Inspiredu, and School on Wheels, Massachusetts. Over the years, the The Dream Mile has raised more than $3 Million that has gone to support more than 180,000 children.
The in-person Dream Mile events will be held in Atlanta, New Jersey and San Jose.
The Virtual Dream Mile event is for anyone anywhere (including Atlanta, New Jersey, San Jose) who wish to participate and complete month long or single day run/walk events virtually. The participants can customize their experience and choose a race that just fits their activity level or go beyond their comfort zone by choosing a race that will push them beyond their self-made physical and mental limitations.
Staying physically and mentally fit is one of the key aspects of a stronger immune system, which in turn is an innate weapon to fight off the COVID-19 virus or any viral/bacterial pathogen. Whether participating at an in-person event or virtually, with an underlying mission of supporting underprivileged children while promoting fitness, The Dream Mile is a win-win event for participants and beneficiaries.
