Vibha Bay Area Dream Mile

November 14, 2021 @ 9:00 am - 1:00 pm

The Dream Mile is back In-Person in the Bay Area!
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 health officials’ guidelines to prevent the spread, and we strongly encourage all participants to abide by these regulations. All the participants get a full sleeve technical t-shirt and a medal.

What is a Dream Mile?
The Dream Mile is a Run / Walk Fundraiser event for 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.

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

Race distances:

We have 5K, 10K, and Half Marathon running events in addition to a 5K Walk event. All run and walk events will be held on USATF Certified courses.

The Half Marathon event is open for ages 16 years and above only.

The 5K Walk is a non-competitive and non timed event. As such, participants will not receive a timing chip and there won’t be any winner awards.

Maya Miramontes

Volunteer and Site Coordinator

Maya participated in her first A Change of Pace event at the age of 3 months. From there she followed her siblings in participating in a multitude of events from runs to kids’ triathlons. While growing up with parents who ran a sports marketing firm, she had no choice but to attend most events her entire youth life. Now as an adult, she has returned (by her own choice) and now serves as the volunteer and site coordinator. In addition, she has also been instrumental in the 2024 design and transitioning of our new website. We are fortunate to have her tackle one of the more critical areas that are considered the backbone of any event, volunteers. Maya resides in Davis and In her spare time she spends time as a dog trainer while simultaneously assisting other local nonprofit organizations such as the Yolo County SPCA and Cancer Champions.
