Dear Friends of Reading to Kids,

October starts Tuesday, which means our biggest reading clubs of the year are coming up soon! We need YOUR help to recruit another 163 readers!

To get started, sign up today. Then join our October 12th Facebook Event so your friends will see you'll be attending.

Please also print out this flyer and post it in heavily populated locations such as coffee shops, the gym, your office or other various community centers. Make it a personal and fun social event by including the school at which you'll be reading.  You can also use this easy message template to reach out to your friends and co-workers.

October means magicians! We also encourage all volunteers to dress up in school-appropriate Halloween costumes!

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 2020 Los Angeles Marathon on Sunday, March 8th!

 Team Reading to Kids logo

We're looking for six more full marathon runners and six Charity Challenge runners (the last 13 miles of the 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) near Dodger Stadium the day before the marathon on Saturday, March 7, 2020.

You can 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 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 Los Angeles Marathon website.
