Help Rose raise money

For participating in 2021 Scotiabank Toronto Waterfront Marathon

My Story…

Canadian children's books are such an important part of supporting our unique culture, improving literacy and fostering a life long love of reading. 

Won't you help me and Team Speed Readers to raise some funds for the Canadian Children's Book Centre in 2022. 

Your contribution will go a long way in delivering programs to kids and supporting creators across our great country!


The Canadian Children’s Book Centre (CCBC)connects kids to Canadian books across the country. Our awards, publications and programs strive to break down barriers so creators can write more books and kids can hear more Canadian stories. Evidence shows that exposure to books can make kids more confident readers, can help kids improve their math and reading proficiency and can help develop more empathy in kids by increasing their own cultural awareness through stories. You can register individually or organize a team for a chance to win a CCBC membership and prizes such as; mugs, totes and copies of Canadian children’s books.
