Dear Friends of Reading to Kids,

Our Music & Celebrations reading clubs this past Saturday were swinging and clapping with 1,021 kids, 394 volunteers, 90 parents, and 21 teachers & staff.

Join us in a round of applause for the wonderfully talented and generous musicians who performed for us on Saturday!

Then on Sunday, Team Reading to Kids got up at the crack of dawn to run the 2015 ASICS LA Marathon. They've raised over $13,000, and even though the marathon is completed, please donate today to their fundraising pages on FirstGiving!
