Join the District 54 Education Foundation and School District 54 in supporting literacy and promoting health and fitness for the young and old by participating in the 20th annual Run to Read. We are currently planning the Run to Read 2024 to be held in person on September 22, starting and ending at Dirksen School in Schaumburg. This event will include a 5K run/walk, a 1-mile walk and children’s races.  You are also welcome to participate virtually by walking or running any distance during race weekend.

This year the event will be hosted by the District 54 Education Foundation, who is committed to supporting students today and preparing students for tomorrow. It does that primarily by providing support to children from financially struggling families. With this change in host, there is also a change in how the funds will be spent. All funds raised this year will be used to support programs for these families – a crisis fund, a breakfast program, the District 54 food pantries and grants for children to participate in extracurricular activities. By meeting the basic needs of students, they are preparing students to be successful at school, thus the name Run to Read still applies.

For more information, to register for or to sponsor the event, visit the Run to Read 2024 website. We hope to see you there!
