The Atlanta Santa Speedo Run is based on the highly successful fundraising event in Boston. It’s comprised of a 1.5 mile fun run and social event to raise money for a selected Atlanta charity. 100% of the net proceeds are donated to the selected beneficiary at the end of each year. We are happy to be supporting Everybody Wins! Atlanta in our 6th year and have set a goal of $100,000.
Please join us on Saturday, December 13, 2014 at Hudson Grille Midtown Atlanta – 942 Peachtree St NE at noon. Race starts at 2:00 pm
For 18 years, Everybody Wins! Atlanta’s Power Lunch literacy program has been delighting the 15,000+ Metro Atlanta students, volunteers, teachers, school administrators and parents impacted by this shared reading experience.
Here’s how it works:
- Volunteers are paired with a first through fifth grade student identified by his or her teacher as reading below his or her grade level.
- Pairs meet each week during the student’s lunchtime for the entire school year, and the volunteer reads to the student for 30 minutes.
It is a simple, but proven concept. Studies show that reading aloud to a child is the best way to improve literacy. Test scores and teacher feedback tell us this program works extremely well, and students tell is they can’t wait for Power Lunch each week. Power Lunch really is POWERful!!
We are an all volunteer organization and donate 100% of all donations to our beneficiary. We rely on the support of our corporate sponsors to ensure the success of the event. Information about becoming a sponsor is available here,
