Exercise the Right to Read

Check out this new school library awareness-raising fundraiser, "Exercise the Right to Read." Two author-educators, Wendelin Van Draanen and Mark Parsons are coordinating the campaign. Their mission is to raise funds for school libraries and disadvantaged children, and to promote reading and fitness in schools across the country.

This is a one-time race. The husband/wife team will get sponsors for their run in the ING New York City Marathon, November 4, 2007. All donations will go to the non-profit "First Book." Individual schools can also participate in the fundraiser from October 1-November 4 in order to raise money for their school libraries.
