THE STORY:

ALLISON TOWNSEND wrote - 

To my beautiful friends & family,

For the fourth time within an eighteen-month period, I will run 26.2 miles. However, this time around, I will run not only to challenge my mental and physical capabilities, but also to inspire and motivate at-risk high school students within the greater Boston area.  So, prior to the 117th Boston Marathon's race day, on April 15th, 2013, I will join the Dreamfar High School Marathon Team as both a mentor and a coach. While training students in preparation for their race day in May of 2013 for the Cox Providence Marathon, I will teach them the value of commitment, perseverance, and optimism in their everyday lives. With these three qualities, students will learn that anything is possible, even completing a marathon. 

Thank you for allowing me to share my enthusiasm with you. Any donation that you wish to make on my behalf is greatly appreciated. I will be thinking of you all during this incredible journey.

Please track my progress via my blog, empowerME(nt)! Copy & paste following link into internet browser -- www.doubleatown.tumblr.com

I wish you all love and happiness in your own endeavors.

Dreamfar High School Marathon (DHSM) is New England’s first high school marathon training program.  We are a Greater Boston-based program that teaches high school students that anything is possible, even completing a marathon.  With hard work, perseverance and guidance from dedicated mentors, our runners realize their potential as they train for the Cox Providence Marathon.  We teach our students realistic goal-setting and the value of commitment and teamwork – skills that ensure success in the classroom, on the road, and beyond.  Victories, such as running their first mile, motivate and empower students to accomplish more; challenges, like training in the cold Boston winter, teach them the power of dedication.  Over the past four years, we have seen significant improvements in our runners’ academic achievement, classroom attendance, physical and mental health, and life skills.
