THE STORY:

           Last May I ran the Cox Providence Marathon with the “Dreamfar” team at my high school as an alternative to running the Boston Marathon. Unfortunately, due to my age I couldn’t participate in the Boston Marathon, which has always been my ultimate dream and goal. But I did get to witness first hand what this Dreamfar program is all about. Personally, I ran with the Dreamfar team because of my love and passion for running. I certainly didn’t even have the support of my family because I was also a captain for the varsity tennis team at my school while training for the marathon. It wasn’t an easy feat but somehow my determination shined through as I juggled both.

        Surely, you can’t run a mile or 26.2 miles without determination. Dreamfar promotes determination and hard work, which ultimately transfers over to other areas in our everyday life. I witnessed the inspiring growth that took place within all the Dreamfar participants. Also, training for a marathon is physically and emotionally challenging but Dreamfar does whatever it can to make it as painless as possible for the students. And crossing that finish line, it’s cliché, but you really feel like you can do anything; I can’t wait to experiencing this feeling again.

      I’m so excited to be raising money for the Dreamfar program because I know first hand how life-changing and thrilling the experience of training with this group is. Thank you all so much for supporting me and for supporting Dreamfar!

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.
