River Legacy Parks is once again hosting Arlington Reads’ Book It for Literacy! The 3rd annual 5K and one mile Fun Run takes place on Saturday, August 11, staring at 8 a.m.
The purpose of Book It for Literacy is to create awareness and support for Arlington Reads,
the literacy program of the Arlington Public Library. In addition to helping a worthy cause, this event offers participants the chance to have fun, meet and hang out with like-minded individuals, and even win an iPad. It’s a win-win for everyone!
Racers of all ages can complete in age categories: 0-5, 6-10, 11-14, 15-19, 20-29, 30-39, 40-49, 50-59, 60-69, and over 70, which pretty much covers everyone. Runners can register online (costs vary), or on race day, starting at 7:15 a.m. First place runners in each category will receive an award.
If you’re fundraising for the event, you get four tickets for the iPad drawing for every $20 you raise. The drawing will take place on the 11th after racing is completed. Make sure you hang around, because you have to be there to win.
Fill out a sponsorship form, and see how many chances you can get for that iPad. Completed forms can be returned to any library branch by Thursday, August 9, or at the race by 9 a.m. race day.
If you’d rather not fundraise—or run—but still want to support Arlington Reads, a donation form will help you do just that.
River Legacy Parks, located at 701 N.W. Green Oaks Blvd., is the jewel of the City of Arlington’s park system. At 1,300+ acres, it offers just about everything you’d want from a park: nature, wildlife, recreation, and is a great place for an event like Book It for Literacy, whether you’re running or just watching.
