You are part of a growing group of fundraisers coming together to support DREAM’s mission of closing the opportunity gap for youth in low-income housing.
You will embark on an epic adventure as we move the Tnaig family (of Camp DREAM lore) from the West Coast back to Camp DREAM in Northern Vermont, in time for the summer.
DREAM’s Coast-2-Camp Virtual Relay Fundraiser takes place over the course of the 4 weeks of the month of May (Saturday, May 1st – Monday, May 31st), just in time for DREAM summer programming to open back up to in-person. There will be lots of costumes and camaraderie, and plenty of fun challenge as we “move” across the country, through our 6 different DREAM regions, and up to Camp DREAM, in time for our first day of in-person summer program.
Our journey will start in Los Angeles, moving along the famous historic Route 66. From Chicago, we will head east to Philadelphia and then north towards the Camp DREAM adventure base. Each team will move approximately 3500 miles!
Beginning May 1st, participants will log activities that contribute to powering their teams' buses across the country (via running, walking, riding, and "other activities"). 1 mile for the bus = 1 mile running = 1 mile walking = 1 mile biking. Please REGISTER, by clicking the registration button above or on a team below.
There are multiple teams participating, each with a different impact initiative (supporting overnight camp, summer enrichment, youth mentoring and more).
Throughout your journey, you will have the opportunity to participate in team activities for mileage boosts, personal challenges, post photos and videos, and earn badges and prizes.
After registering, you will receive a race t-shirt and a welcome letter. There will also be virtual Rest Stops along the way, where each member of your team will receive a gift of appreciation and encouragement from DREAM and our partners (including a cheese box from Cabot Creamery and a cone certificate from Ben & Jerry's).
At the center of this event is the opportunity for us to raise critical funding for DREAM’s operations. We look forward to seeing you on the road soon!
Supporting DREAM through this relay and beyond will help support our mission of closing the opportunity gap, including ongoing mentoring, adventure programming, summer enrichment, overnight camp, academic support, and more!
