We're Running for Read Ahead!

On the weekend of November 7-8, we will be lacing on our sneakers for the first-ever "Book It!," a virtual race weekend benefitting Read Ahead, a reading-based mentoring nonprofit serving elementary students throughout New York City.

Read Ahead intervenes early and connects children in NYC public elementary schools with caring, trusted, consistent mentors. We’re participating in "Book It!" because we support their mission to help children unlock their full potential and want to do our part to make sure all students have access to this program.

Research shows that mentoring has a wealth of benefits to children -- especially those from high-need backgrounds -- but unfortunately those students who may benefit most are also least likely to have a mentor in their lives. Through the foundational experience of reading together, Read Ahead mentors give their mentees the confidence, motivation, and support to succeed.

All proceeds from this event enable Read Ahead to bring this life-changing program to the children who need it most.

As a team, we are committed to ensuring that children at public elementary schools can continue to receive one-to-one mentoring from a caring, trusted adult.

Help us reach our goal! All contributions are an investment into unlocking Read Ahead mentees’ potential to set them on the path to thriving adulthood.
