Dear Friends of Reading to Kids,
February has arrived, and we need another 68 volunteers to
sign up for our February 10th "Good Friends" reading clubs! Please also help recruit by joining our February 10th Facebook event to share with your friends.
(If you have signed up for the February reading clubs but can't make it after all, please go here to cancel to open your spot to someone else.)
RUNNERS NEEDED FOR 5 K,
1/2 MARATHON, OR MARATHON!
Do you know any runners? Are you a
runner? Please forward this email to them
and ask them to join
Team Reading to Kids in the 2018 Skechers Performance Los
Angeles Marathon on Sunday,
We're looking for three more full marathon runners and one Stadium vs. The Sea Charity Challenge runner (approx. 13 mile course) to join us in one of the best marathons in the country.
If either of those distances is too daunting, you can join us in the Big 5K (that's just 3.1 miles) around Dodger Stadium the day before the marathon on Saturday, March 17, 2018.
share this Facebook group with any of your runner
friends to encourage them to join our team!
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
IMPORTANT NOTE: To register to run
on behalf of Reading to Kids, you
MUST receive from us a special web address
to use when registering on the Skechers
Performance Los Angeles Marathon website.
SCHOOL AMBASSADORS NEEDED NEXT WEEK
Next week for an hour or two between 7:30am and 2:30pm we need your

MUSICIANS WANTED MARCH 10TH
Our March 10th reading clubs feature "Music & Celebration", so we are looking for musicians to perform at each of our eight partner schools. In the past we've had everything from Korean drum troupes to electric violin players to marching bands!
If you or someone you know is interested in sharing the gift of music with
our students and volunteers, email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Thank you for your help with any of the above!
