What did you do Sunday morning? This past Sunday Team Reading to Kids was up before dawn to run the 2018 Skechers Performance Los Angeles Marathon! Head over to their website to see a slideshow of our runners before, during, and after the marathon.

They have raised over $15,000, and though the marathon is completed, please still donate to their fundraising pages to reward them for their hard work and valiant efforts!
