You did it! Thanks to the support of so many of you, our 2022 Annual Fund Drive was another success, with 399 donors helping us raise $61,842 - $12,500 of that raised within the last 12 hours of 2023!
We still expect a few more checks in the mail and corporate matching donations, so we should easily exceed 400 donors!
Our very special thanks go out to our three
School Competition Winners!

9 RUNNERS NEEDED FOR THE
2023 LA MARATHON,
13.1 MILE CHARITY CHALLENGE,
Do you know any runners? Are you a
runner? Please forward this email to them
and ask them to join
Team Reading to Kids in the 2023 Los
Angeles Marathon on Sunday,
This is our 9th time running the marathon, and we're looking for at least two more marathon runners and seven Charity Challenge runners (the last 13.1 miles of the course) to join us in one of the best marathons in the country.
If either of those distances is too daunting, you can join us in the LA Big 5K (that's just 3.1 miles) near Dodger Stadium the day before the marathon on Saturday, March 18, 2023.
share this Facebook group with any of your runner
friends to encourage them to join our team!
If you or a runner you know is interested in
becoming one of our fundraising runners or
creating a fundraising team, please email
