Dear Friends of Reading to Kids,

Our March 10th reading clubs are filling up nicely, though we still have 64 spots, so please submit your RSVP today. You can also help recruit friends by joining and sharing our March 10th Facebook event.

Plus, you want to enjoy the musical performances at each school!

We especially need GLCs, Training Coordinators, Food or Bagel Runners, and Site Coordinators at several of our schools! If you have volunteered with us at least a couple of times and would like to be more involved, please email us at info@readingtokids.org. The Bagel Runner would pick up bagels from a shop just south of LAX at 5pm next Friday.

(If you have signed up and can't make it, please cancel to make room for another volunteer.)

THEN DONATE TO SUPPORT OUR
MARATHON RUNNERS!
HAND OUT WATER DURING THE RACE!

Team Reading to Kids LA Marathon runners

So far they have raised $7,613 while training for hundreds of miles. They have just 18 more days to reach their $20,000 fundraising goal! If you can donate a buck a mile to your favorite runner, you'll help fuel them towards the finish line!

HAND OUT WATER DURING THE RACE!

Help represent Reading to Kids during the marathon by handing out water to the runners! You get a free LA Marathon t-shirt, too, as explained at their volunteer FAQ.
