Last year, YA Runs a 5K raised over $3400 for First Book, ran/walked The Color Run 5K in Philadelphia, PA, and donated almost 100 books to the Free Library of Philadelphia. This year, the goal is to raise $5,000 for We Need Diverse Books, run/walk The Super Run in Philadelphia, PA on Saturday, June 6, 2015 at 8 a.m., and donate even more books to a local library.
Those registered in The Super Run will receive a YA Runs A 5K tote bag on the day of the run. Don’t worry if you can’t make it to Philadelphia, you can participate virtually!! Virtual runners will receive YA Runs A 5K bookmarks in the mail by September 2015 if a minimum donation at least $15 is made on or before June 5, 2015! Let YA Runs A 5K know if you plan to join the Virtual YA Runs a 5K so that you can receive bookmarks.
Did I mention there are prizes and raffles for those who donate? Check out the original post here from YA Runs A 5K to get all the details on donating and The Super Run.
I can’t make it PA, but you can bet I’ll make a donation. What a great way to support We Need Diverse Books.
