DREAM MILE 2015

5K/10K Run/walk and kids activities

FB  Twitter

The Dream Mile is the flagship event in Vibha's continued efforts to increase awareness about the plight of underprivileged children. It was started in 1998 in Atlanta and quickly became 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. This is the 17th year we are having the Dream Mile 5k/10k Run/5K Walk in Atlanta.

Since 1991, Vibha has reached out to many children through 250 projects in India and 10 projects in the US. Proceeds of this event will benefit child development projects for underprivileged children in India and part of the proceeds go to the Children's Healthcare of Atlanta.

Join us for a day of fun under the sun: run or walk along the beautiful new route, enjoy healthy snacks, get tapping to the lively music, meet other runners/walkers, get to know our enthusiastic volunteers...you'll have a blast and you'll be helping a great cause at the same time!

For more details on the projects we support visit www.vibha.org
