Sarah Bush Lincoln is proud to offer the Fast Reads Summer Running and Reading Program in partnership with Charleston Public Library. Fast Reads is a fitness program for boys that uniquely combines training for a 5k (3.1 mile) race with reading and nutrition education. The Fast Reads program will be available to boys who will have completed 3rd, 4th or 5th grade. Twenty spots are available on a first come first serve basis. The program will be overseen by Josh White, Healthy Communities of Sarah Bush Lincoln.

Fast Reads provides a wonderful opportunity for your son to learn about setting goals, developing character and staying healthy as we work toward our goal of completing the Run for the Bagel 5k on Saturday, July 22, 2017. Participants in Fast Reads will meet as a group twice a week from 10 to 11:30 am at the Charleston Public Library. During our meetings we will have a healthy snack, discuss the book Star Wars - Jedi Academy: A New Class, by Jarrett J. Krosoczka, stretch and do a low - impact workout and begin training for our 5k.
