THE ROAD TO READING NATIONAL RELAY
SAINT LUCIA July 3, 4 & 5, 2018
Sponsored by OneWorld Schoolhouse Foundation
Ontario schools and running clubs are taking giant steps to improve literacy in developing countries.
Last year, over 1,000 school children in St. Lucia ran a relay circuit of their island nation. Meantime, in Ontario, Guelph’s Centennial Collegiate Vocational Institute, Haliburton Highlands Secondary School and several elementary schools joined the run in Ontario with events of their own. They managed to raise over $10,000. Combined with donations from individuals and sponsors, our campaign collected a remarkable $52,000.
Running in circles worked so well we decided to do it all over again this year. Why not jump in with us– whether you are a school or you simply love to run?
