Dear Friends of Reading to Kids,
Despite a rainy three-day weekend, on Saturday we had 256 kids, 218 volunteers,
54 parents, and 32 teachers & staff
make our January 14th reading clubs a success!

One of the Kindergartners on Saturday printed his name when he signed in with us. Does his signature remind you of Toy Story?

9 RUNNERS NEEDED FOR THE
2023 LA MARATHON,
13.1 MILE CHARITY CHALLENGE,
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 2023 Los
Angeles Marathon on Sunday,
This is our 9th time running the marathon, and we're looking for at least two more marathon runners and seven Charity Challenge runners (the last 13.1 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 LA Big 5K (that's just 3.1 miles) near Dodger Stadium the day before the marathon on Saturday, March 18, 2023.
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
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.
Our 2023 runners have until March 19th to reach their ambitious $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.
MUSICIANS NEEDED MARCH 11TH
Our March 11th reading clubs feature "Music & Entertainment", and we are looking for musicians to perform at each of our eight partner schools. In the past we've had everything from Korean drum troupes to electric violin players to marching bands!
If you or someone you know is interested in sharing the gift of music with
our students and volunteers, email us at email@example.com.
