Literacy 5000

- formerly Dyslexia Dash




literacy 5000


LITERACY 5000 is part of a national tradition sponsored by the International Dyslexia Association. Called the Dyslexia Dash, its goal is to promote awareness of dyslexia and the many effective strategies to overcome literacy issues.
We ran or walked through the beautiful Fairmont Park, which was designed by Frederick Olmsted, who also designed Central Park and Prospect Park in New York City. The park features rose gardens, several lakes, a bandshell, and the historic boathouse.  Our goal of this event is to raise funds to aid on-going programs in four major areas: information, referrals, conferences, workshops. Literacy issues are very prevalent and such issues (poor reading and writing skills) are a national public health concern because of the impact they have on social skills, employment, and especially self-esteem.
2012 was our 3rd annual 5K and it was our best ever!! We had twice the number of runners – and we thank all of our participants for helping to make this an exciting event.  We are eagerly looking forward to our 4th annual race in 2013 – we hope you will join us.
