... so too has our contribution to the community. From our early years with a few hundred runners, to our current event with thousands, we have raised over $500,000 for local literacy initiatives. Click here to see a yearly breakdown of who has benefited from our event.
April 19, 2016 - The IGT Legs for Literacy organizing committee is pleased to announce that proceeds from last year’s event held Oct 25, generated a total of $93,000 for Moncton area literacy projects. This brings the total amount of funds donated to local community literacy efforts since 2005 to $599,000.
Join us on October 23, 2016 when we once again take to the streets and trails of Greater Moncton for the 17th annual event.
In 2008 we undertook a review of our charitable activities and purpose, and among our guiding principles are the following important elements
- Our giving approach will emphasize an equal emphasis on literacy programs in French and English
- Our primary focus on literacy and youth will remain through a continuing commitment to the school boards of Districts 1 and 2, however we will also begin to expand our charitable donations to include adult literacy programs through the Moncton Literacy Coalition, or other initiatives.
We look forward to building a charitable giving program that will have a meaningful and lasting impact in our communities.
