Dream Miles for Smiles

Your donated miles will give Special Olympics athletes and individuals with intellectual or developmental disabilities the opportunity to experience a life-changing weekend.

The Dream Ride Experience is a weekend-long event to celebrate the achievements of our Dream Riders, the true heart and soul of our event. Our Dream Riders are Special Olympics athletes and individuals with intellectual or developmental disabilities from 25 states and three countries. The Dream Ride Experience honors these men, women and children living with intellectual disabilities in our communities.

This weekend event and year-round movement highlights their determination and willingness to persevere, overcome challenges, and shatter stereotypes. The Dream Ride Experience advocates for inclusion and building friendships amongst not only the Dream Riders, but also with the participants and attendees.

During this weekend-long event, Farmington, Connecticut, welcomes thousands of motorcyclists, automotive enthusiasts and guests from across the world, who come together to support The Hometown Foundation, Inc.

Participants have journeyed from across the United States and internationally to be a part of the Dream Ride Experience. It is because of their passion that The Dream Ride Experience is a lasting and growing event! Dream Riders worldwide are given the opportunity to attend The Dream Ride Experience and treasure this lifelong memory. Many Dream Riders make the trip not knowing what the weekend will hold; however, it is fair to say that this is where dreams come true!

My dream was to go to Dream Ride. I got to meet so many people from all over the world. They treat us like kings and queens. People just love us for who we are, it’s like we’re normal, you can’t ask for anything more. It’s like a whole new world. - Jackie Kennedy, Dream Rider
