DREAMFAR High School Marathon helps students build confidence, skills, and lasting friendships at a crucial moment in their lives. Launched in 2008, the program challenges students of all abilities and backgrounds to reach their full potential--physically, socially, emotionally, and academically--through a mentor-supported marathon training program. In its first eight years, DREAMFAR has helped over 500 students from 15 Boston area high schools across the finish line.
This is my second season as a DREAMFAR mentor. After 24 Saturday runs with a great group of kids (and a lot more training in between) our training is now complete, and we're ready to run the Providence Marathon! Getting to know these students has been one of the most rewarding experiences, and by raising a little money I hope to help DREAMFAR continue to support and mentor wonderful students.
Please consider supporting this terrific organization--every bit helps!
