Everyone will find something new and fun to read aloud at the 14th Annual National Life Read-A-Thon on Saturday January 26th from 1 to 3:30 pm!
Will it snow? We don’t know! But we do know that there will be lots of books for everyone at the Read-A-Thon. Join us at the National Life cafeteria, 1 National Life Drive in Montpelier.
Read aloud as many books as you can, fill your passport with stamps, collect gold coins for a chance at fabulous prizes from Bear Pond Books, and devour Post Office Cafe cookies and milk while you sing along with Jon Gailmor.
Every child picks a free, brand-new book to take home!
Children of all ages are welcome with an adult! Come as you are on the spur of the moment; no sign-up is necessary.
The Read-A-Thon is a free community event generously supported by National Life Group.
The Race to the Top is one of our favorite days of the year! It’s a great day to climb Vermont’s highest mountain and the atmosphere is always festive. Just take a look at these faces from last year’s finish line:
There are three ways to support Everybody Wins! Vermont at the 2018 Race to the Top:
Hike, run, or bike up the Mount Mansfield Toll Road (4.3 miles and 2564 feet of ascent).
Help us staff the water break halfway to the top (no hiking or running involved!).
Children can join the Kids’ Fun Run at noon at the bottom of the mountain.
Use Everybody Wins! special code for a discounted registration fee of $30. The fee includes the race, a tech t-shirt, a raffle ticket (for fabulous prizes), and a ticket to the BBQ afterwards. (Water stop volunteers don’t have to register for the race, but do pay for the BBQ).
We will bring support cars to the summit so our team can ride down if your knees are complaining.
Everybody Wins! team members agree to raise pledges for Everybody Wins! Vermont from July 30 to the Race day. We have a dedicated Race fundraising page and we will help our team set up individual fundraising pages, and publicize the race and the fundraisers. You can see last year’s Race page by clicking here. Scroll down to see the individual fundraising pages of last year’s team.
You can dedicate your fundraising to a specific Everybody Wins! site, or raise money for our general fund, which benefits all the sites. Either one makes a big difference!
In 2016 we raised $8,382. In 2017 we raised $31,547. The Race to the Top is on a roll, and with your help, we can make it even more successful in 2018. Every penny goes to keep children reading with their mentors all school year long.
Come Race with us! For more information, contact Beth at firstname.lastname@example.org or 802-229-2665.
Last chance for this school year! Sign up by Feb 28 to read with a child once a week and change a life.
