The Story

EVENT DATE: Nov 15, 2014

16% of children who are not reading proficiently by the end of 3rd grade do not graduate from high school on time -- a rate 4 times greater than that for proficient readers. Only 42% of 3rd grade students in Newark District Schools passed their language arts test in 2013.

 

The Boys & Girls Club of Newark is proud to host a 5k race to benefit literacy programs for the young people of Newark, especially those who need us most, so they can reach their full potential as productive, caring, responsible citizens.
