Founded by entrepreneur, motivator and professional fundraiser, Linda Argila, DREAM EXTREME was created to empower others to overcome life’s challenges and live their dream’s. It’s an integral part of Linda’s ongoing mission to help women live life fearlessly through adventure, and get in the best shape possible physically, mentally and spiritually. Proceeds from DREAM EXTREME will benefit STEPS To End Family Violence and Concern Worldwide, improving the lives of women and children from New York to Haiti.
