THE STORY:

The road leading to a goal does not separate you from the destination; it is essentially a part of it.  ~Charles DeLint

Children running as a part of the Dreamfar High School Marathon get to experience the challenges and successes, excitement and drive that comes from setting a goal to run a marathon.  The kids that are a part of this amazing program are supported and coached by mentors who know how trying marathon training can be, but also how rewarding it is.  I am so excited to be running on the Dreamfar Boston Marathon team and to be given the opportunity to support a program that motivates so many kids and gets them active and working towards a tremendous goal.

Setting a challenging goal and working towards it is exciting, nervewracking and empowering.  The kids that are a part of this program are pushing their limits while working with mentors and coaches who know the discipline and commitment running takes. Running a marathon opened my eyes to the power of challenging myself, and it is exciting to know that running for this team helps kids challenge themselves and work towards a 26.2 mile goal. 

I am so lucky to have so many amazing people in my life, and am so grateful for all the support you all give me each and every day. Thank you in advance for the support and contribution you are able to make to Dreamfar.

xoxo

DREAMFAR HIGH SCHOOL MARATHON wrote -

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.
