About This Activity

Decoding Dyslexia Virginia is proud to sponsor our 3rd Annual 5K Run for Dyslexia and 1 Mile Fun Run on October 15th, 2017 at Burke Lake Park, Fairfax Station in celebration of October being Dyslexia Awareness Month.  We've added dyslexia simulation stations to the event, immediately following your completion of the 5K or the 1 Mile Fun Run!  It's a wonderful opportunity to get a small window into what it might feel like to navigate the world with dyslexia!  REGISTER BEFORE SEPTEMBER 28th FOR FREE T-SHIRTS WITH YOUR REGISTRATION!

Decoding Dyslexia Virginia is a grassroots movement focused on linking families to resources, support, and educational interventions for dyslexia. We aim to raise dyslexia awareness, empower families to support their children and inform policy-makers on best practices to identify, remediate and support students with dyslexia in Virginia.

With your support, this event will rally families, friends and supporters of DDVA as we work together to achieve our mission and create change for children and adults with dyslexia in our community. All proceeds from this year's 5K event will go directly to funding teacher professional development in support of children with dyslexia.  Check out the scholarship application here!
