Millvale: Run to Read 5K slated for April 12

Reading and Sports blending with community. Sounds like an event that fits with my mission and that of the Running Mates Blog! Millvale -- hope the water passes and doesn't stand!
Run to Read to support the Millvale Library Project!

The University of Pittsburgh's chapter of Beta Alpha Psi, an international honor society for accounting, finance, and information systems students, is hosting a charity race to raise funds toward the establishment of a community library in Millvale.

Join the Pittsburgh community as they Run to Read in support of the Millvale Library Project. Held at the Millvale Riverfront Park, Run to Read is a 5k run/walk fundraising event to be held on April 12th, 2008. All proceeds from the race will support the Millvale Library Project as they seek to establish a community library in Millvale. Run to Read will also kick-off the Millvale Library Project Summer Reading Program, which invites children to get excited about reading and get involved with the Library Project.

In addition to the 5k run and family fun walk, local Millvale restaurants will show their support with donations of food and drinks for the participants. This 'Taste of Millvale' showcases local culinary specialties for donors and participants unfamiliar with the Millvale community. With prizes for age group winners, reading circles for children, and a 'Taste of Millvale', this is a Saturday morning suited for the entire family. Run to Read is sponsored by Beta Alpha Psi of the University of Pittsburgh and Deloitte and Touche.
The event is in my public calendar. And, a Google Document has more details.
