What is Dream Mile?

The Dream Mile is a Run / Walk Fundraiser event organized by Vibha, with the anticipated participation of 1,000 patrons from across the greater San Francisco Bay Area.  The Dream Mile has become a permanent fixture on the calendars of runners in various cities across America. To date, The Dream Mile has raised more than $3M to support upwards of 180,000 children.
