Dream Mile is back In-Person in Atlanta!
We are very excited to have everyone back this year! Considering the ongoing risk of coronavirus, we would like to follow all state and local guidelines to prevent the spread, and we strongly encourage all participants to abide by these regulations. A month long virtual event will also be held for anyone who would like to participate remotely to support the cause. Registrants will also be able to participate in both events.

Location: Collection at Forsyth, 410 Peachtree Pkwy, Cumming, GA

What is Dream Mile?
The Dream Mile is a Run / Walk Fundraiser event for Vibha, with an anticipated participation greater than 5000 patrons across the world. The Dream Mile started in Atlanta in 1998 to support underprivileged children in their ambitions. Over the last 23 years, 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. In addition to the causes above, the Dream Mile puts funds towards a cause in the local community in which it takes place such as Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta or Communities in Schools Chicago.

Who is it for?
The Dream Mile is for anyone who would like to walk or run a few miles to empower the dreams of underprivileged children.

Runners/walkers should be wearing our bib with timing chip on front of their shirt.
All winners are based on Gun time** (See Chip time vs Gun time below).
Chip time vs Gun time:
Chip time is the actual net time a runner runs between start line and finish line.
Gun time is the net time when the race starts and time when the runner crosses the finish line.
If you are exactly at the start line when the race starts, then your chip time and gun time are the same.
If you cross the start line a little after race start, your gun time will be little more than your start time.

To start, you can set up your pledge page on the Vibha portal and here is how you can do it.

If Facebook is your preferred form of fundraising, here is how you can create your fundraiser on Facebook. Use your Facebook Stardom to raise funds and awareness to the cause you are working so hard for! FB is waiving the processing fee on donations so 100% of the amount you raise comes to Vibha!

Share your fundraiser on your FB wall, in Email, via Whatsapp, Instagram profile etc. with everyone you know. You never know who will step up!
Don't forget to remind your donors of the Corporate Matching Donation concept! Many companies match the donations made by their employees to a nonprofit. So that will essentially double their donation and hence double the impact!!  
Here is the Vibha Facebook page filled with a lot of great promotional material that you can share with others during your fundraising journey.
Here is the Vibha Youtube Channel that has got some very recent amazing brief videos of several projects, Vibha philosophy by our President and Vibha Song created by Shankar Mahadevan, etc. Use them to show your donors the impact of their donations!
Thank Your Donors immediately and publicly (not for anonymous donations) on Facebook. Tag them in your posts and show your appreciation for their support.
POINTS TO NOTE
The suggested approach to successful fundraising is to have fundraisers created on both the platforms - Facebook and Vibha portal and share/use it accordingly keeping in mind the donor population.
Donation capabilities from India are not currently available on Facebook. However, Vibha portal accepts donations in INR as well as from any country credit card as well. So reach out to your family/friends in India and make them a part of your efforts!
THANK YOU ONCE AGAIN FOR YOUR COMMITMENT AND HARD WORK TO MAKE A DIFFERENCE IN THE LIVES OF MANY MORE CHILDREN!  HAPPY "FUN" DRAISING!!
