2nd Annual Lace Up for Literacy

The 2021 Virtual 5K was a huge success!  This year we exceeded our goal by raising over $16,000 for the Bookmobile and Literacy Packets for Aurora families.  Thank you for your generosity and support!

Quote from Marianne Renner, 5K participant:

“My morning run today had an extra special significance. It’s always a time of reflection, but today’s reflection was about the children of our community who need basic resources that we take for granted – books. Today’s 5k run was in honor of Lace Up For Literacy sponsored by our amazing Aurora Public Library. Thanks to everyone who put this event together. I was able to take in the sights of Phillips Park Golf Course, Zoo and Mastodon Lake all while helping our community youth.  “ – Marianne Renner
