The Believe In Books FUN RUN is Going Virtual!

by Gino Devaney on August 24, 2020

 

The Believe in Books Literacy Foundation’s Annual Fun Run will be a virtual race this year! Participants are asked to run a designated length based on age and once complete, participants must submit a photo to Believe in Books Literacy Foundation, no later than Tuesday, September 1st, 2020.  Once the finish photos are received, BIBLF will be sending each participant a medal and a code to get a FREE pass into Story Land valid any day through the 2021 season and race t-shirts will be available for pick-up at Memorial Hospital sometime in mid-September!

            While the three organizations who host this event wish it could be in person, they hope families will use this opportunity to get kids outside and have some fun, while earning free passes into Story Land!  Online registration is only $10 per child and is open for children up to the age of 13. Scholarships, provided by Memorial Hospital, are available for students of SAU 9, 13, 20, 3 and MSAD 72 school districts. All net proceeds from this virtual race will go towards the BIBLF’s Bookmobile Program which has been out and about visiting communities and giving out free books this Summer!
