Dear Friends of Reading to Kids,

We have about 10 spots available, so sign up now. If we are full, keep checking back today and tomorrow for new spots.

(If you're signed up but can't join us, please click here to cancel before 2pm tomorrow so someone else may take your place.)



Team Reading to Kids LA Marathon runners

Please support Team Reading to Kids as they run the Skechers Performance Los Angeles Marathon on March 18th!

So far they have raised $8,640 while training for hundreds of miles. They have just 11 more days to reach their $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!

Team Reading to Kids 2018 Skechers Performance LA Marathon

With every mile they train and every dollar they raise, these valiant souls help you inspire kids with a love of reading.


Help represent Reading to Kids during the marathon by handing out water to the runners! You get a free LA Marathon t-shirt, too, as explained at their volunteer FAQ.

Our group will be at Water Station Mile 5 at Glendale Blvd., between Bellevue and Kent St. in Echo Park, on Sunday, March 18th from 5am - 11am.

Click this link to sign up. Our group is Reading to Kids and our shift location should be listed in green. Click the box to the green J05 Water Station Mile 5 shift, complete the form, and submit!

You can also cheer them on during the marathon at our course support booth located at San Vicente Blvd. and 17th St. from 8:30am - 1:30pm.

Did you know Reading to Kids receives about half of its funding from corporation and foundation grants?

For example, over the last 12 years three of our volunteers helped us receive $196,000 in grants from their employers!

Please check to see if your employer offers grants to which Reading to Kids can apply, and let us know at info@readingtokids.org - you may help us buy thousands of books for kids while making a great impression on your employer!


Thanks, and please let us know if you can help for this Saturday's "Music and Celebrations" reading clubs!
