About This Activity




Imagine what your life would be like if you could not read. You would be missing out on one of life's most fundamental gifts. If you could not read, your innate curiosity may turn to frustration and discouragement or even anger, which is a bad combination of feelings. Children born with a neurological disorder called Dyslexia struggle with these feelings every day. Through no fault of their own, they are faced with reading and writing roadblocks that have seemed insurmountable--until now.

Dyslexia cannot be cured, but it can be overcome. This year Legacy is holding its 2nd Annual 5K and 1-Mile Fun Run to support The Legacy School continue its mission; to meet the needs of the whole child helping to remediate each child’s language weaknesses. The program offered at the Legacy School provides children in 1st-8th grades the most effective program of its kind in battling this reading disorder. No one else in the state has a program remotely like it, with one-on-one, professional tutoring offered to all admitted children every day.

Join us on Saturday, October 3rd,  lace up your sneakers, and have some fun with us, all while helping area children become successful life long learners. Afterwards enjoy the day at Oktoberfest with your FREE admission.
