Dear Friends of Reading to Kids,
Happy 2014! We hope your year is off to a great start and that we'll see you at the
January 11th "Discovery and Adventure" reading clubs.
We still need 148 more volunteers to join the
today. Then, help spread the word by also replying to our
January 11th Facebook Event that you are going.
Volunteering with friends on January 11th is a
great way to celebrate the new year!
(If you have signed up and can't make it,
please cancel to make room for another volunteer.)
RUN THE ASICS LA MARATHON WITH
READING TO KIDS
Do you have friends on Facebook who post about their latest running achievements or goals? Encourage them to join
Reading to Kids in the 2014 ASICS LA Marathon!
They can be a part of the inaugural group to run for
Reading to Kids in one of the best marathons in the country.
They can run either the full marathon or a half-marathon,
and the dollars they raise will go to support our monthly reading clubs. Our runners have even started to train together.
If you or a runner you know is interested in becoming one of our fundraising runners or creating a fundraising team, please email Chris Martin at
marathonreadingtokids.org for all the details.
IMPORTANT NOTE: to register to run on behalf of
Reading to Kids, you MUST receive a special code BEFORE registering on the ASICS LA Marathon website.
THANK YOU TO THE GREEN FOUNDATION
Please join us in thanking
The Green Foundation
for their recent $15,000 grant!
This is the second year The Green Foundation had supported us, and their generous funding will help us in our efforts to inspire children with a love of reading. We are deeply thankful for their valuable support.
