Summary:
Join us for a 5K promoting literacy among urban families in Kansas City, Missouri. Our run is put on by Pages & Chapters, a local nonprofit organization, who works with families in the Waldo/Brookside area and east of Troost Ave. The course will go through Loose Park.

Overview of Pages & Chapters:

Pages & Chapters aims to work with families, not just students, in all areas of literacy, especially reading, writing, speaking and listening. They do so by:

- Providing resources, such as academic textbooks, flashcards, worksheets and extracurricular reading materials to students

- Educating and encouraging parents to see the importance of academics and become invested in their child’s success while honing their own literacy skills, if necessary

- Fostering an environment that promotes literacy and learning in the family’s home

- Increasing academic performance in school

Entry Fee:
