Dream Big! is proud to be a part of the Boston Athletic Association's 128th Bank of America Boston Marathon® Official Charity Program. As one of many charity partners, Dream Big! will have a team of 16 runners in the 128th Boston Marathon on April 15, 2024.

The Dream Big! Boston Marathon Team will raise funds to support the important work Dream Big! does to provide girls and young women from low-income situations with the equipment, uniforms, athletic footwear, sports attire, training and program fees needed for them to participate in sports and physical activities that contribute to their health, education and overall well-being. Over the past 13 years Dream Big! has already had a direct, positive effect on more than 75,000 girls and young women in need through equipment, footwear, sports attire and uniform donations, program and camp scholarships, sports clinics, training fees, college showcases and the Dream Big! Leadership Conferences for middle and high school female athletes from urban communities. If it has been your dream to run the Boston Marathon, now you can achieve your dream while raising funds to make many other wonderful and deserving girls’ dreams come true.

Thank you for your interest in running the Boston Marathon® with Dream Big!. While the required minimum is set at $7,500 per runner, set your fundraising sights high — and give your fundraising plan careful and serious consideration, as this plan is an integral part of your application.
