Run & Read—Three Opportunities!
Run and Read is an after-school physical education and literacy program, now run out of three elementary schools in Guelph: Willow Road, Ottawa Cres and Brant Ave. The children involved in the program come from low income families or are often recent immigrants to Canada. Student volunteers help the children develop their reading skills and get them ready for a 5km run. The Willow Road program happens on Tuesdays; Ottawa Cres, Wednesdays; and Brant Ave, Thursdays. There are carpools running from campus for each. If you are interested in volunteering, talk to Jamie (firstname.lastname@example.org).
