Mitch’s personal dream is to help launch a million dreams in his lifetime. Bringing this goal to colleges and universities across the country, the Big Dream Gathering is now more than a series of events; it’s a movement – a movement of people giving themselves permission to dream and helping each other to achieve those dreams.
