Get your students excited about reading and make a difference in your community with one of our fun and easy to run programs!
Program Options and Dates 2012 - 2013
We are offering both the traditional 2-3 week MS Read-A-Thon and the 1 day MS Read and Walk. (Schools can choose either option.) For the MS Read and Walk the school determines the distance students will walk/run and the amount of time the students will read in a day. Students can then collect pledges or donations for this event and will receive awards based on their fundraising amounts. Please contact the Kamloops and Area Chapter for more information about either of these programs.

- Society Hosted A MS representative conducts a 20-30 minute assembly.
