Annual Kids' Fun Run

Kids support kids' literacy initiatives.

Kids will race in Believe in Books Literacy Foundation's Kids' Fun Run to raise funds for the Books from Birth Program. Set annually on Labor Day, the race takes place in Story Land for kids ages 13 and under!

GLEN, NH - On Labor Day, Monday, September 3rd, kids will get to race through Story Land in Glen, NH for Believe in Books Literacy Foundation's Annual NH Kids' Fun Run 2018, Glen, NH. Kids Fun Run presented by Memorial Hospital and Story Land.

The Kids' Fun Run will begin promptly at 9:00 am with registration opening up in the back parking lot at 8:15 am. Last year, over 400 kids participated in this event and Believe in Books Literacy Foundation is hoping for even more this year! Bonuses of participating as a racer include a t-shirt, a medal, and a free admission into Story Land for the entire day! Local children in school districts SAU 9, 13, 20, 3 & MSAD 72 have their registration fee covered by Memorial Hospital, so they can race for free! All other participants only pay a $10 donation to register! All net proceeds from this event will go towards BIBLF's Books from Birth program.

Books from Birth started in 2008 and since then, BIBLF has been able to provide new books to over 3,000 families through this outreach program. Children in this program are mailed new, age-appropriate books at important developmental stages at no cost to the family when they return a postcard provided at a participating hospital! Looking to expand this program to more hospitals in more towns, BIBLF hopes to raise funds and awareness of the importance of an early introduction to literacy. Statistics show early introductions to literacy provide an increase in educational outcomes and continuous reading habits into adulthood.

Visit www.believeinbooks.org to register for the event or to sign up and help volunteer at the event. Volunteers will also receive an event t-shirt and a free pass into Story Land that day! BIBLF is hoping this will be the biggest Fun Run to date.

This fundraiser is one that the Believe In Books Literacy Foundation has created to help support its literacy initiatives. The Believe In Books Literacy Foundation is a Charitable 501 (c) (3) Non-Profit guided by the needs and involvement of the communities of which it serves, with a mission to advance healthy development of young minds through literacy programs that encourage early reading, imagination, and physical activity.
