I'm running for Literacy
Welcome to my TeamQuest Page!
I am fundraising for the International Dyslexia Association (IDA)* to help create a better future for every child and adult who struggles with Dyslexia and other reading difficulties…because reading changes lives!
As a 5-year member of the DC branch of the IDA, it is a passion of mine to raise awareness, funding, and support for those whose lives are impacted by Dyslexia in some way. Just as physical health is important to me, so too is the importance of making it possible for every person to read without challenge!
On Saturday, March 10th, 2018 I will be running a half-marathon to help fund the efforts of IDA. I have set a fundraising goal of $2200 and am already on my way to raising that amount.** If I am fortunate enough to surpass my goal, I will be able to receive free overnight lodging in a DC hotel close to the race!
**UPDATE: I was 75% of the way to reaching my $2200 goal, when I found out that my name is on the list at The Willard Hotel in DC for a free night's stay before the race!!! I have increased my goal amount to $4000, because I am confident I can raise that amount (if not more)!
Please consider making a donation to this worthy cause! You won't be sorry you did!
DC Branch of IDA
*IDA is the authoritative source of current information about Dyslexia and other reading challenges. IDA focuses on on educating parents, teachers and professionals about Dyslexia, assuring that structured literacy is embedded in educator training and providing the opportunity for all people to learn to read.
The goal is for all stakeholders to realize their full potential and advance our quest by responding immediately to people at their point of need with information or referral to available and accessible resources.
We articulate with impatience and clarity that reading is a civil right. We are committed to educating the general public about the economic impact of learning differences and other negative impacts of Dyslexia on society.
Together we can create a world where everyone can read!
