Reading to Kids as they run the Los Angeles Marathon on
So far they have raised $9,069 while training for hundreds of miles, and they have just 25 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!
With every mile they train and every dollar they raise, these valiant souls help you inspire kids with a love of reading.
HAND OUT WATER DURING THE RACE!
Help represent Reading to Kids during the marathon by handing out water to the runners!
Our group will be at Water Station Mile 5 at Glendale Blvd., between Bellevue and Kent St. in Echo Park, on Sunday, March 8th from 5am - 11am.
