The Anne Arundel County Literacy Council (AACLC) will hold the fourth annual “Literacy Lights the Way” 5K walk-a-thon on Saturday, October 19, from 8:30am to 11:00am.
The walk will take place on the B&A Trail between Marley Station Mall and Jumpers Hole Road in Glen Burnie.
Information about registration, the route and the walk is available at the Literacy Council’s website: www.icanread.org. Walkers can register from the website’s “Donate” link. For those unable to participate, donations are also accepted at the website. Registration is $25, and there is no fee for AACLC students and children 16 and under.
Free snacks, fun games, and water will be provided. Prizes will be awarded to every child who participates. The walk is wheelchair and stroller accessible. Friendly, leashed pets are welcome also.
Previous AACLC walk-a-thons have been great successes. Dozens of participants and businesses such as Koons Annapolis Toyota, 3-Point Products, and Sandy Spring Bank of Annapolis have raised almost $25,000 to provide free, convenient reading, writing, math, and English instruction for adults and out-of-school youth in Anne Arundel County. Sponsorships are still available. Contact Lisa Vernon at firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
