Kick off the summer and walk with us as we celebrate what would have been Mildred’s 100th Birthday at our annual Walk-A-Thon! The Walk-A-Thon begins Friday, June 3rd and will conclude Sunday, June 12th, where we will come together for a celebration of Mildred’s life at the Needham Golf Club! There, we will continue the 10-day celebration with all participants walking the final half mile on the course together. Then come hang with us by the fire pit on the lawn and take in the beautiful evening views as you enjoy Mildred’s favorite foods, drinks, live music, and more!

Our Story

Mildred's Dream Foundation was created in appreciation of the legacy and lifetime work of Mildred Piltch, lovingly referred to as “Millie” by those who knew her well. Millie’s passion for and commitment to making the world a better place was evident in everything she said and did.  MDF honors her passions: helping those with physical or mental health challenges, as well as their families; eliminating violence and abuse while supporting survivors of such trauma; and providing the best education possible for everyone.  In celebration of the life she lived, her children have created the foundation in her honor.  They are hopeful that others will help make Mildred’s dream a reality and make a difference in the world.


Who We Support
