Run and Read

Run and Read is an after-school fitness and literacy program, now run out of three elementary schools in Guelph: Willow Road, Ottawa Crescent and Brant Avenue Public Schools. The children involved in the program come from low income families or are often recent immigrants to Canada. Student volunteers, often connected to the MFRT, help children develop their reading skills and get them ready for a 5km run. The Willow Road program runs on Tuesdays; the Ottawa Crescent program takes place on Wednesdays; and the Brant Avenue program is on Thursdays. If you are interested in volunteering at one of these schools, contact Guelph Campus Ministry. Both undergraduate and graduate students are welcome to volunteer.
