BLC 5K Run/Walk for Literacy

Dayton, OH

Race info:
Your participation will raise money for literacy and inspire people to read!

Your help is needed to make this 10th year of the Brunner Literacy Center’s 
5K Run/Walk a huge success.

When you participate in this charity run/walk, you will have an immediate impact.
You will open the world of English for a new English speaker, support an aspiring graduate's journey to a GED, or help a new reader travel from one learning level to the next. 

When adults learn how to read, do math, and understand the world around them, they can make a better life for themselves, their families, and our community and workplaces.  A more literate Dayton and greater Miami Valley benefits the whole community.

No other place in our community tutors one-on-one. Adults who have never read are learning to read!

Your sponsorship and donations will keep the BLC up and running at full speed ahead.
