Dear Friends of Reading to Kids,

Looking to be inspired? Want to see a professional "storyreader" in action? Check out this stirring YouTube video about Jim McKenna, a retired teacher turned storyreader, doing what you do with us every month! Can you recognize a book we recently read aloud?

We're still looking for another 147 more volunteer storyreaders for our "Friendship & Family" reading clubs on February 11th.

Please sign up today, then also join our February 11th Facebook event to share with your friends. Help recruit the volunteers we need!



Are you a runner? Do you know any runners? Please forward this email to them and ask them to join Team Reading to Kids in the 2017 Skechers Performance Los Angeles Marathon on Sunday, March 19th!

We need relay runners to run 13.2 miles each in one of the best marathons in the country. This is an exclusive opportunity to participate without having to run the entire route!

You can share this Facebook group with any of your runner friends to encourage them to join our team! 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, 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.

If you have volunteered with us before, please reply to info@readingtokids.org or call the office at (310) 479-7455 if you can be an Ambassador!
