Mark October 25th on your calendars for the 2015 IGT Legs for Literacy event. Last year was our biggest and best event to date. Thanks to the support of our sponsors and participants, we donated $128,000 to local literacy initiatives in 2014! Our 2015 planning has already begun so stay tuned for updates over the coming months at www.legsforliteracy.com or on facebook at https://www.facebook.com/LegsforLiteracyCourirPourLire.
Once again we will feature four races- 5k, 10k, half and full marathons. Based on runner feedback, runners really enjoy our route: we plan some minor adjustments that will be designed to make it even better. We will also have a Youth Athletic Event on race weekend.
