If You Can Read this ...

... please consider taking part in Read for Literacy's 4th Annual Amazing Race for Literacy May 8. This scavenger hunt-style car race will take participants around an area of Greater Toledo to raise money to combat low literacy in Lucas County.

Read for Literacy programs help the more than 30,000 adults in Lucas County who are considered to be “functionally illiterate", which means that they cannot understand the instructions on a prescription bottle, help their children with homework, or read a bed-time story to their children. Very often these adults have trouble getting or keeping even the lowest-paying jobs.

I'll post details as I get them. In the meantime, please consider volunteering with, or even becoming a Facebook fan of, Read for Literacy.
