Each year, thousands of American girls have big sports dreams, but little funding. 1,000 Dreams Fund wants to change that! During the build-up to the 2018 Winter Olympics in PyeongChang, we are setting a new goal – to help fund the sports dreams of young women while helping fund Olympic-bound U.S. Women’s Ski-Jumper Abby Ringquist’s quest for gold.

Abby’s “never give up” attitude and commitment to pursuing her dream at all costs makes this young female athlete the perfect ambassador for us.

To kick off our exciting partnership this week, we are inviting YOU – our community of dreamers – to help support Abby by joining her and us on #TeamAbby – 1DF’s latest challenge.

Over the course of the next couple of weeks, you will get to learn more about Abby, her awe-inspiring sport of ski-jumping and what keeps her focused on her lifelong dream of competing in the Olympics despite a near career-ending setback in 2014.

By engaging with our #TeamAbby challenge, you will have the opportunity to win a couple pretty awesome prizes from gift cards to a chance to have a conversation with Abby herself!
