Help me support Reading to Kids! My friend helped found Reading to Kids and I want to help support his good work for this great organization. Their mission statement is this: Reading to Kids is a grassroots organization dedicated to inspiring underserved children with a love of reading, thereby enriching their lives and opportunities for future success.
What I love about Reading to Kids is that volunteers go to schools in the LA area every second Saturday of the month. They read to the kids and the kids get to take a book home! This fundraiser will directly support those efforts, to put books in kids’ hands. I’ve already paid for own registration for the LA Marathon so all of your money goes to Reading to Kids!
Please consider sponsoring me for a mile of my 26.2 journey through the amazing streets of LA, from Stadium to Sea! Sponsor a mile for $18 and you’ll be entered into my raffle! I’ll have 8-10 prizes to raffle!
You can win a BIC Bands technical trucker hat! I love these hats!
I have Momentum Jewelry Motivate Wraps to raffle! These Motivate Wraps are fitness wraps you can wear during a workout, run or ride! They keep you inspired and motivated you need to dig keep.
Simple Squares are great snacks or trail food. They’re made with only 5 ingredients!
Starbucks gift cards! I love my post-run coffee and want to encourage you to have coffee after your workout, too! 🙂
Please sponsor a mile here! As soon as all 26.2 miles are sponsored, I’ll have the raffle and notify winners via email, Facebook or Instagram. The race is March 19th so I hope to get my miles sponsored very soon! Thank you for supporting Reading to Kids!
Your path, your pace, Tam
