Welcome to our RUN FOR BOOKS Race Page!
Our goal is to help raise funds for ELEMENTARY KIDS and ELEMENTARY SCHOOL TEACHERS! YAY!!
Educational and Government budgets get tighter and tighter and classroom sizes are growing. The teachers are dipping into their own pockets to buy supplies (like books, pens, markers, crayons, paper) to keep their students progressing.
How do we know this? Well, we've got a few close friends that are amazing teachers!
In 2012 the SparkleDot Foundation hosted the Run For Books and raised $700.00.
This year (2013) we are hoping to triple this figure and help those kids again.
25% of your $20.00 entry fee goes to the SparkleDot Foundation and the remaining 75% will be split between the schools that have runners show up! We'll be gathering that information at the Registration Process.
So far we have the following schools with Run For Books Rally Leader helping gather parents, students and friends to the race:
- I do not have a specific school
- Download the General Entry, Fill In and Bring to Race)
- (your donation will be split between all of the participating schools)

Garden Grove IMPACT Academy Principal Mary Curtis with Randy and Sarita Shoemaker. The kids LOVE the giant check!
"That's the biggest check I've ever seen in my WHOLE life!"
Our boot camp opened doors in July 2006.
On Jan 1st, 2007 we produced our first 5K race and haven't stopped once since then.
The Run For Books is a special race because it helps people begin the NEW YEAR on the right foot (and maybe even running on those feet!).
