Rainy skies didn’t stop nearly 200 participants and more than 40 community volunteers from gathering for the 6th Annual Reading is Fun 5K Run/Walk hosted by District 279 Foundation in partnership with Kidstop. Partners from Life Time Fitness and several mascots were on hand to help warm up the runners, many of whom trained for the race during their summer at Kidstop. Thanks to the generous support of the event sponsors and participants, all proceeds from the event will support the media centers in all the schools across the district.
