THE STORY:

Ameer Washington here. I want you to help me support the Boys & Girls Club of Newark. The club is a place I attended as a boy and learned so many things. It is where I got my first real job. It is where I met so many life long friends and established great relationships with caring individuals. A big reason that I am who I am today is because of the Boys & Girls Club.

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, and responsible citizens.

As an author, I have a love of books that runs very deep. My interest in books and writing began when I was very young. Books allow you to take a trip to so many parts of the world or to an entirely different world than the one in which we live. Stories help to ignite the imagination, and imagination is the basis of the creative mind. Yet, while books do so much more.

The ability to read is one of the greatest gifts in all the world. The old saying that "reading is fundamental" is so true. Every thing we learn from science, math, technology, and business involves reading first.

Help me to give the of gift of reading to fund literacy programs at Boys & Girls Club of Newark. Help to ensure that all of our children, especially those who need us most are reading at grade level and can seize each day with confidence and have a bright future.
