September 11 marked the beginning of the Lake County Literacy Coalition’s annual fundraising event, “The Virtual Walk/Run for Literacy.” Registration is open through October 1, 2020, and the event can be completed any time through and including October 11. All proceeds go to support the volunteer tutors of the Adult Literacy program and to purchase books to distribute through the Families for Literacy program, to help break the cycle of illiteracy.
“Neither snow nor rain nor heat nor gloom of smoke will stop this virtual event!” Coalition President, Deb Ehrhardt, paraphrased the post office creed. “We hope the smoke from recent fires will clear and participants will be able to enjoy their walk or run outdoors. But the distance you choose can also be completed indoors, on a treadmill, at the mall or other indoor location.”
You can still be one of the first 100 people to register and receive a free LCLC headband!
Registration fees are $25 per adult (age 19 and over) and $10 per child (ages 7 through 18). Children under age 7 pay no fee and do not need to register.
