THE STORY:

DREAMFAR HIGH SCHOOL MARATHON wrote -

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.

High School is one of life’s most challenging times. Students experience confusion, insecurity, and constant pressure. It’s all too easy to fall off the pace and withdraw.

DREAMFAR High School Marathon helps students build confidence, skills, and lasting friendships at this crucial moment in their lives. Launched in 2008, the program challenges students of all abilities and backgrounds to accomplish something exceptional: train for and run a marathon. In its first eight years, DREAMFAR has helped over 500 students from 15 Boston area high schools across the finish line.

Founded at Newton South High School by Jamie Chaloff, a special education teacher, DREAMFAR is suited for students of all sorts. Students who excel. Students who feel lost. Even students at risk. The formula is simple. You show up. You work hard. You have fun. Students train together from October to May, with volunteer adult mentors who serve as role models. On Saturdays, the entire cohort runs together. In May, they line up in their DREAMFAR colors at the start of the Providence Marathon. 26.2 tough miles later, they celebrate at the finish.

DREAMFAR is the only high school marathon program in New England. It teaches students how to focus, helps them makes friends, and keeps them fit and healthy. Most of all, it’s fun. Mile after mile, day after day, DREAMFAR students discover an inner strength that will guide them through their years in school, and through the years beyond.
