THE MISSION OF DREAMFAR HIGH SCHOOL MARATHON
...IS TO CHALLENGE HIGH SCHOOL STUDENTS TO REACH THEIR FULL POTENTIAL – PHYSICALLY, SOCIALLY, EMOTIONALLY AND ACADEMICALLY – THROUGH A MENTOR-SUPPORTED MARATHON-TRAINING PROGRAM.
Dreamfar accomplishes its mission by addressing several of the issues that often get in the way of a student's success and enjoyment in high school. Dreamfar seeks to help each student – develop a sense of self-worth and self-respect – facilitate connections; in school with other students, teachers and adult mentors from the community – instill the value of hard work to use when tackling life's challenges in high school and beyond – and experience the value of a physically active lifestyle.
