Staff Comes Out to Support Literacy through Run for Reading 5K

Loose Park was still dark and the morning was shockingly chilly, but UMKC staff members had smiles on their faces when they came out to support the first annual Run for Reading 5K benefiting Pages and Chapters on Saturday, November 3. About seven staff, students, and alumni participated in the event and UMKC staff were able to talk about urban education with community teachers, parents, and other people interested in promoting literacy education in Kansas City.
