We are an after-school youth development program designed to empower 3rd-5th grade boys to overcome their obstacles and chase their dreams.
We empower our kids to be Dream Chasers by teaching the importance of reaching for their passion, building a team of support around them, and developing the grit to overcome their obstacles.
We serve our program by engaging kids in fun fitness games and challenges designed to build confidence no matter what their skill or ability level, all within an encouraging, team-based atmosphere.
Our X2F Code:
It is not easy to chase a dream. Fear, obstacles, and failure are all real. But so are my passion, my team, and my grit. And my passion is greater. And my team is greater. And my grit is greater. I am a Dream Chaser. I chase greatness.
Registration: September 16th - October 4th
Season starts: Oct 7
Dream Chaser Challenge - Saturday, November 16
X2F NW indiana
Hi, I'm Barbara Gederian Muckel, executive director for X2F NW INDIANA. What an honor it is to be a member of the X2F family! I've had many blessings in my life thanks to God, my amazing family and an awesome circle of friends. My greatest gift and highest achievement is my son, Hunter. I believe that all children deserve encouragement, support and the opportunity to succeed. As a Girls On The Run coach for 11 seasons I have come to realize that boys are also craving the opportunity to be a part of something greater. When I read the X2F mission statement, I realized that every boy in our NWINDIANA community deserved the chance to not only dream BIG, but to also be given the tools to achieve those dreams with Guidance, Encouragement, Support and of course, LOVE.
