BENEFITING: DREAMFAR HIGH SCHOOL MARATHON
ORGANIZER: DREAMFAR HIGH SCHOOL MARATHON
EVENT: 2015 Boston Marathon
Thank you for visiting my page! I am once again training for the Boston Marathon. I am honored to partner with Dreamfar for a second time, and to raise money for a cause in which I firmly believe. This year there are a record number of students, nearly 100, enrolled in the Dreamfar program. The money I raise will help ensure that these students have the tools they need to successfully complete the required training including race entry fees, running gear, and training supplies. Every donation makes a difference and gets our team closer to the goal of having each student start race day confidently, fully prepared, knowing that they have earned their spot at the start line.
For those of you unfamiliar with this organization, the Dreamfar High School Marathon program is dedicated “to challenging high school students to reach their full potential -physically, socially, emotionally, and academically - through a mentor-supported marathon training program.” High school students in the Boston area are training to run a full marathon! Over the past few weeks, I’ve had the opportunity to meet these students. I am truly inspired by their determination and enthusiasm for running. This program not only helps them achieve an incredible life milestone, running a marathon, but also allows them to experience the sense of community and belonging that comes with being part of a team. Running a marathon isn’t just about the running. Each year the Dreamfar students learn that big goals are actually made up of several small milestones that are achieved along the way, and that they are capable of greatness. If every student could take just one small piece of these lessons with them once the marathon is over, this year’s program will have been a success. We need your help to make that success possible. Please consider donating to Dreamfar.
Many of you gave last year. Know that I am sincerely grateful for your generosity of wallet and spirit. Please consider donating to the Dreamfar cause again this year.
My Goal: I have committed to raise $4000. My company, athenahealth, has also generously donated $10,000 in my name which brings my fundraising total to $14,000.
