Dear Friends of Reading to Kids,
SUPPORT AND CHEER ON OUR
Team Reading to Kids has just 12 more days until March 19th to reach their $13,600 fundraising goal! Please donate a buck a mile as they prepare for the Skechers Performance Los Angeles Marathon!
So far, our runners have raised $12,237 in support of our
monthly reading clubs. Your donation will make all their months and miles of training pay off in books for the kids we serve!
You can also cheer them on during the marathon on Sunday, March 19th, at our course support booth located at San Vicente Blvd. and 17th St. from 8:30am - 1:30pm.
