Providence Marathon
A DREAMFAR mentor and her student cross the finish line together at the Cox Providence Marathon.

Dreamfar High School Marathon (DHSM) is a nonprofit organization that challenges at-risk youth to reach their full potential--socially, emotionally, physically, and academically--through a mentor-supported marathon training program. Mentors meet with their students Saturday mornings (November-May) and provide support and encouragement in their training for the Providence Marathon. DHSM is currently seeking volunteer mentors who are able to run/walk a 12 min/mile pace or slower. All mentors will receive professional certified marathon coaching and will have access to a nutritionist and physical therapist. Please contact Kate Russell, kate@dreamfarhsm.org, for more information on how to get involved.
