Children's Dyslexia Centers' Annual Walk/Run Events

Imagine what your life would be like if you could not read. You would be missing out on life's most fundamental gifts. If you could not read, your innate curiosity would turn to frustration and anger which is a bad combination of feelings. Children born with a neurological disorder called dyslexia struggle with these feelings every day. Through no fault of their own, they are faced with reading and writing roadblocks that have seemed insurmountable until now.

Dyslexia cannot be cured, but it can be overcome. This  year we are walking and running to raise money to help children with dyslexia learn to read and write. The program offered at Children’s Dyslexia Centers, Inc. provides the most effective treatment of its kind in battling this reading disorder. No one else in the nation has a program remotely like it, with one-on-one, professional tutoring offered to children at no charge to them or their families.

We need your help to keep up this good work. We are asking you to lace up your sneakers, raise some funds, and take part in the WALK/RUN to Help Children with Dyslexia which is a 5 mile, 5K (3.1 miles) or a particular course distance in your community or in a community near you.

Here is just some of what you will enjoy by participating:
•    A safe route open to all ages and abilities.
•    Commemorative T-shirts for those who register prior to the date of the WALK
•    Entertainment along the event route
•    Frequent water stops
•    Fundraising rewards
•    Post-event celebration

Join in the RUNS and WALKS to Help Children with Dyslexia

Several are planned so far, with many more to  come.
This year our event will take place in many cities and towns throughout the Northern Masonic Jurisdiction.  These events will raise funds to support the tutoring services children need to overcome dyslexia. We are eager to have you sign up in your local area. Detailed information about the event nearest to you is listed under locations. Please join us in this important cause.
