Run 2 Read 2016!! Over 300 Participate in the Biggest Run2Read Ever!

feature image

The 6th annual Run2Read was held at Stony Creek Metropark on Saturday, June 18. It was the biggest Run2Read to date with over 300 people registered for the challenging and fun 5 and 10K trail runs and 5K walk. The weather was perfect for a shaded trail run and many enjoyed the run for the first time in 2016. This year we challenged ourselves to keep it local. We accomplished that goal! The race took place in Macomb County and we sourced all of the supplies from Macomb County businesses. We purchased t-shirts from EA Graphics in Sterling Heights. Our registration company, Eastside Race Management and our race timing company Fast Dog Race Timing are also Macomb County based. This year we gave medals to the first 250 finishers. We had the 250 medals made by a local Mount Clemens ceramic artist, Deanna Clyne. Even our DJ, Rock the House Entertainment, is based in Macomb County. Keeping it local, we had race bag pick up at two of our sponsors’ stores. Russ Milne Ford of Macomb Twp. and the Vitamin Shoppe of Shelby Twp. each hosted a day of race bag pick up. It provided R2R participants an opportunity to discover the goods our sponsors have to offer. This year we provided bagels, bananas, watermelon, muffins and water to the finishers. We are so proud Run2Read continues to grow every year. If you were a participant or a volunteer we want to thank you for your support. We certainly appreciate it!

We've all been there, volunteering and wondering if, or how, we're making an impact. Well, when you become a volunteer tutor with Macomb Literacy Partners, you won't be wondering. You'll see first hand how your efforts are helping someone in your own community. Just this week one of our students confided to her tutor she was able to read her first book ever! We see it everyday, students getting better jobs, becoming citizens, reading to their children for the first time. If you think being a volunteer tutor is something you might be interested in, stop by our orientation and we'll show you how Volunteer Literacy Tutors Change Lives!
