SUPPORT AND CHEER ON OUR
MARATHON AND 5K RUNNERS!

Team Reading to Kids has just 10 more days to reach their $20,000 fundraising goal!

Please donate a buck a mile as they prepare for the Los Angeles Marathon on March 8th or the Big 5K on March 7th!

So far, our runners have raised $11,770 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!
