Dear Friends of Reading to Kids,

We're ready to seek out fun at our Mysteries & Adventure reading clubs this Saturday! If you haven't already, sign-up or keep checking for any open volunteer spots.

Esperanza Burrowing Owl in the News!

Those of you volunteering at Esperanza may want to ask the kids about their new resident, a burrowing owl! Check out this article in the LA Times for details and a photo!

If you're signed up for any school but can't make the journey after all, please click here to cancel before 3pm tomorrow so someone else may take your place.

We're also excited to be giving away a computer to one lucky kid at each of our eight partner schools! We extend a special thank you to all of our computer donors.

We urgently need five more runners to join us in one of the best marathons in the country. You can share this Facebook group with any of your runner friends to encourage them to join our team!

Runners can run either the full marathon or a half-marathon, and the dollars raised will go to support our monthly reading clubs. 

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 Skechers Performance Los Angeles Marathon website.
