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. Students train together from October to May, with volunteer adult mentors. On Saturdays, the entire group runs together. In May, we will run the Providence Marathon - 26.2 miles, together.
I joined DREAMFAR because I love running and want to be more involved in my community. I wasn't a runner in high school, but I wish this program had been available to me to discover my passion for running earlier. Last week we completed the Fairhaven Turkey Trot as a group and for most students it was their first road race! I look forward to working with these students through the winter to help them realize their goal and see that anything is possible.
Thank you for your consideration!
