Despite hanging up my teacher badge back in Japan, I couldn't shake the bug and now I volunteer for Reading to Kids.
Reading to Kids is a wonderful organization that helps underserved elementary school kids excel in literacy by holding monthly events where volunteers do reading oriented activities with kids K-5th grade at schools throughout the LA area. As our program grows, so does the need for new books and supplies for the kids (and they deserve it), so how about tossing a couple bucks our way? I will be running in the 2019 LA Marathon for Reading to Kids and hope to raise at least $650 dollars for our organization. If you donate a dollar for every mile that I run (which will most definitely be the full 26) that only comes out to $26. Not bad right? And I promise that I will sprint, limp, crawl, and roll my way to the finish line no matter what, so you have nothing to lose!
