Description

Join School District 54 in supporting literacy and promoting health and fitness for the young and old by participating in the 18th annual Run to Read. All proceeds for the event will be used to support literacy in School District 54 by purchasing books for the classrooms of new teachers. We are currently planning the Run to Read 2022 to be held in person on Sept. 25, starting and ending at Dirksen School in Schaumburg. This event will include a 5K run/walk, a 1-mile walk and children’s races. You are also welcome to participate virtually by walking or running any distance during race weekend.

The District 54 Education Foundation and the Schaumburg Township Food Pantry will have informational tables at the event for you to visit. Please consider making a monetary donation to the D54 Foundation’s Crisis Fund, which provides groceries, gas and other essential items for families experiencing financial hardships or troubled situations. We also encourage our participants to visit the Schaumburg Township table for some pre-race fuel (bananas, granola bars, etc.) and to drop off donations for the food pantry. The food pantry’s most needed items are canned tomato products (sauce, paste, diced), boxed pasta, pancake mix, syrup, dried or canned beans, peanut butter, condiments and baking supplies (cake/brownie mix, flour, sugar, baking soda). 

Not a runner? With a $10 donation, you can sponsor a D54 student whose family cannot afford to participate in this race. For $20, you can sponsor 2 children. For $100 you can sponsor 10. You get the idea.
