Fifty years ago, Billy Mills achieved his dream of winning an Olympic gold medal, and since then, he has used that victory to help him give back to the American Indian community.

To celebrate Billy’s dream and his leadership, Running Strong is proud to announce the Dreamstarter™ grant program to help the next generation of American Indian youth make their dreams come true.

“The most powerful thing you can give to a child is a dream. Pursuit of a dream can heal a broken soul. God has given me the ability. The rest is up to me. Believe. Believe. Believe.” – Billy Mills
