Post-Marathon Update
May 18, 2017

Hi All, As the 2016-17 Dreamfar season comes to a close, I wanted to share a final update and thank you. We had 15 Dreamfar Southcoast students  See more

THE STORY:

 

I recently joined a great group of people in a unique program to train high school students to run a marathon. DREAMFAR High School Marathon is a volunteer-led group with a mission to challenge students to reach their full potential -physically, socially, emotionally, and academically - through a mentor-supported marathon training program.

DREAMFAR High School Marathon helps students build confidence, skills, and lasting friendships, while keeping fit and healthy. Launched in 2008, the program challenges students of all abilities and backgrounds to accomplish something exceptional: train for and run a marathon. DREAMFAR was founded in 2008 by Jamie Chaloff, a special education teacher in Newton, Mass. In its first 8 years, DREAMFAR has helped more than 500 students from 15 Boston-area high schools across the finish line.

Last year, DREAMFAR expanded to the SouthCoast region with 3 local schools participating, Global Learning Public Charter School, Old Rochester Regional High School, and Dartmouth High School. I'm running with an amazing group of SouthCoast students and adult mentors. Some are accomplished marathon runners but many more, like me, are doing this for the very first time. We train together from November to May (perfect running weather in New England!) to prepare for the Providence Marathon; 26.2 miles later, we celebrate at the finish.

DREAMFAR is an entirely volunteer-led effort; students participate for free. Here are some of the things that your tax deductible donation will help support: DREAMFAR team shirts and running gear, race registration fees, water/snack stops for long runs, transportation to races and group runs with Boston DREAMFAR.

Thank you so much for contribution!

The students think they're training for a marathon, but they're actually training for life.
