AND/OR HAND OUT WATER DURING THE MARATHON!

Team Reading to Kids LA Marathon runners

Please support Team Reading to Kids as they run the Los Angeles Marathon on March 8th or the Big 5K on March 7th!

So far they have raised $10,192 while training for hundreds of miles, and they have just 18 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!
