Kalman thanks the community for support as events like the Retro Run allow the Society to continue to offer much-needed programs to the community.

“We are extremely thankful for the continued support of our sponsors, volunteers and the community as a whole. Events like these allow us to continue offering youth literacy programs such as the after school homework help and financial literacy workshops.”

All proceeds from this event will go towards the Literacy Society’s fundraising goal of $3,000 to expand the free programs that are offered to the community.
