This month, Run or walk…
… “a few miles for a million dreams.” That’s the motto for the Saturday, Sept. 5, Dream Mile at White Rock Lake, which benefits the Vibha Dallas foundation and the Door Step School. Vibha volunteers work together to create a brighter future for thousands of underprivileged children in the United States and India. The Door Step brings education to poor children in urban areas of India. The walk/run begins at 7:30 a.m. at Tee Pee Hill on the northwest side of White Rock Lake.
