Aurora came together to innovate literacy solutions!
We more than doubled our goal – thank you!
From October 9 through 17, the Aurora Public Library District Foundation hosted a virtual 5K as a means of raising a goal of $5000 for our Vulnerable Children’s Fund. The donations made through the Lace Up for Literacy Virtual 5K were used to provide literacy packets and dual language books which were delivered to families in need through our partnership with the Marie Wilkinson Food Pantry and the Aurora Area Interfaith Food Pantry.
Through the generosity and involvement of our community, we had over 150 participants and more than a dozen sponsors who made it possible to not only reach our goal, but to more than double it!
Take a look at our photo showcase below of some of our 5K participants who participated in the 5K and the list of people and organizations that made this such a successful event for the children we support.
