JeffVanderLou children are participating in GO! Read, Right, & Run Marathon!
Here at Habitat for Humanity Saint Louis, we strive to staying connected to our homebuyers and to help create a neighborhood. This year we have joined in GO! Read, Right, & Run Marathon program that kicked off in October. The goal of the program is to develop reading-proficient, community-minded, and physically fit children by challenging them to read 26 books, do 26 rights of good deads, and run 26.2 miles over a six month period. This program lasts until April 14th, when the participants get to run their final 1.2 miles in Forest Park during Family Day. Last year this program had almost 3,000 participants and 11 of our JVL children chose to participate for our first year!
