Dear Friends of Reading to Kids,

We have just a few spots left to volunteer for our "Good Friends" reading clubs on February 9th. If we are full when you go to sign up, please keep checking back for new openings in case others need to cancel

We still 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 can help in any of these roles, please email us at info@readingtokids.org.

We can even add you in for one of those roles if your school is full, especially if you can be a Site Coordinator!

(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.)

5K OR MARATHON RUNNERS NEEDED

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 2019 Skechers Performance Los Angeles Marathon on Sunday, March 24th!

We're looking for three more marathon runners to join us in one of the best marathons in the country.

If running 26 miles 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 23.

You can share this Facebook group with any of your runner friends to encourage them to join our team! If you are interested or want to learn more, please email Chris Martin at marathon@readingtokids.org!

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.

They have until March 24th 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!
