SUPPORT OR JOIN TEAM READING TO KIDS
AT THE ASICS LA MARATHON!
The ASICS LA Marathon is happening on Sunday, March 9th, and
Reading to Kids can use your support!
If you are not a runner, you can
encourage them by donating to
our valiant runners'
fundraising pages as they strive towards raising money for
Reading to Kids!
If you ARE a runner, you can run for Reading to Kids in one of the best marathons in the country.
You can run either the full marathon or a half-marathon, and
the dollars you raise will go to support our monthly reading clubs. Some of our runners are also training 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.
CALLING ALL MUSICIANS!
musicians visit each school and perform for the kids. We have had a variety of performers from country singers to Korean drumming
troupes to marching bands and electric violin players!
If you or someone you know would like to share the gift of music with the kids and volunteers
at our March 8th Reading Clubs, please email us at inforeadingtokids.org.
We've started planning this year's fundraising events, and we need your help gathering prizes!
Our events are more fun and raise more money if we have
great prizes to award, raffle, and/or auction. Big prizes. Little prizes. Serious prizes. Silly prizes. We need them all! Check out our list of prizes from
last year's Silent Auction for ideas.
If you have any prizes, or you know where to get them, let us
know! We'd love to have something fabulous for the Silent Auction or for our grand prize Bingo winner -- anything unique or with an
autograph is always welcome!

tips on how to best approach a business or person to donate to our events, and a
