About This Activity

Welcome to the 2nd Annual Bunny Hop 5K!  The race helps buy books to help spread the love of reading in our school and community. Proceeds will benefit the Riverside Elementary School, Reading Is Fun program and the Emporia NEA, Read to Your Bunny project. Books are given to all students at the school at different times throughout the year. The Read to Your Bunny project has delivered Rosemary Wells’ book, Read to Your Bunny, to over 3000 Emporia babies since the program began.
