Recognizing that life’s challenges are endless, DHSM uses marathon training as a metaphor for any student willing to do something really important—to try.  DHSM offers students a judgment-free, non-competitive environment, with incredible team unity, unyielding support from dedicated mentors, and unequaled amounts of fun.  Students do not need to have any running experience to participate.
