Raise money for Legs for Literacy

Legs for Literacy was started in 2000 by a small group of local runners and a team of volunteers. They saw a need for a community running event and decided that any funds raised would go to local school literacy programs. The first event included 5k & 10k distances. Over the years the event grew to include the half marathon distance, and in 2005 the marathon distance was added. Due to amazing support from the running community and business sponsors, the race has continued to grow year after year.Each race helps different local organizations, schools and literacy initiatives in their achievements and pursuit of a better future as they too adapt to new ways and approaches brought by the realities of virtual education.

To date we have donated $781,500 to local schools and charity initiatives.
