Get Lit(erate) Guelph is an annual fundraiser in support of the Start2Finish Running & Reading Clubs (Guelph). The event seeks to promote the value of literature in positively impacting the lives of readers. This reflects the Start2Finish Running & Reading Club’s goal of empowering kids with the tools to lift themselves out of poverty and achieve lifelong success.
The event features local celebrities or well-known community members reading a passage from their favorite book and sharing how it has impacted and inspired them. Our hope is that their stories will, in turn, encourage attending members of the community to help empower local children to create similar stories of their own as they build their cycle of success through the Start2Finish program.
