Robert's Run for Dyslexia
Saturday, June 22

In 2014, a motivated 17 year old, Robert Lawrence, started Robert’s Run for Dyslexia as his Eagle Scout project.  The 5K/1 Mile event is geared to educate the community and spread awareness.  Robert was diagnosed with dyslexia in the second grade and was tutored at the Center in fourth grade for 2 years. He credits the Center and his tutor for significantly impacting his life.

Robert has since achieved many successes! Robert graduated High School as a member of The National Honor Society. He ran Varsity Cross Country for Pekin High School and was a singer-dancer for “The Notables” Pekin Show Chorus.  Currently he is attending college and plays an important role on the board of DAN as a student representative, and stays very active in fundraising for the Center that is dedicated to serving students like him.

All money raised goes to a scholarship fund built to assist families with tuition for tutoring.
