Dream to Be is a non-profit organization that was the idea of two sisters, Makenna and Tayler Murphy. Makenna is 19 years old and Tayler is 17 years old and they both live in Northern Ontario, Canada. The organization raises funds to help support young girls who do not have the means to register in hockey due to the high cost of entry to the sport. The organization will pay for first year registration fees and all equipment required for selected candidates to get their start in hockey.
The estimated cost per candidate is approximately $600 therefore the funding goal for this year is fairly modest at $2400. If more funds are raised above and beyond the goal it will be used to help more young girls enter the sport. Every dollar raised will be used to help others. All administration costs of the organization have already been paid by Makenna and Tayler with money that was earned from their summer jobs.
