About This Activity

The first annual Race to Read begins and ends at Cairo Angelo Canna Town Park and winds through the streets of the tiny town of Cairo in the Hudson Valley Region of New York. The race benefits the Cairo-Durham Imagination Library which is sponsored by the Resurrection Lutheran Church of Cairo.  This program provides free (non-religious) books to children under the age of five living in the Cairo-Durham School District.  Each month an age appropriate book is mailed to the homes of the registered children.  Since the beginning of the program in March of 2014, 3030 books have been mailed to 223 children.n  More information on the program can be found at www.imaginationlibrary.com.
