Description

  

A journey must have participants, a destination, a purpose, motivation, joy, and a challenge. A marathon, half marathon, and 20 Mile Bike Tour are the perfect microcosm of life’s journey, for to participate and complete them, you shall experience all of the above. Only those that persevere to the end will be able to speak of triumph and elation, those who do not complete the task will speak of hope for a return, a sense of accomplishment, and pain. We shall all experience these emotions in MLKJDMA Race for the Dream, events designed to remind you that it is good to fellowship in experience with fellow sojourners rather than alone. 

Our goal is to see within the US a revitalization and expansion of quality of life of corridors named after Martin Luther King Jr , establish MLKJDMA Science, Technology, Education & Math eCenters (S.T.E.M.eC), educate, involve and increase community awareness of healthier lifestyle choices, enhance quality of life economically for the inhabitants of the areas in and around the streets named after MLK, and, ultimately, grow our event to 10 million MLK Dreamers globally going after the same thing, knocking down walls that have been erected to prevent us individually and as a collective from experiencing the best life now.  

 


 Thank you for supporting MLKJDMA,
  Mr. Terry Collier, MLKJDMA President
