    Ride for Reading is official!

    I am excited to announce that Ride for Reading is incorporated and an official non-profit organization. Although there is still a lot of paperwork to complete we are registered with the state. I want to thank all of you who have been so helpful in getting this established.

    We still have one hurdle to get over and that is filing for federal tax exemption. However, it is our goal to have this completed by the end of the summer so that all contributions will be tax deductible.

    We will be seeing you all around the races this summer. We already have approval to set up at a few races this season, and we hope to be at even more.

    Lastly, if you have any children books that you want to get rid of please contact me this week. I am off of school all week for spring break, so I should be able to pick them up. I already have homes for as many books as I can handle. Thanks again for all of your support!

    Your right. I want to especially thank Reed (for help with the website and the logo), Matt (Reed's friend who designed the logo), Mike Millspaugh (donations), Ryan Milby (for desinging our brochures and posters), John Scarffioti (donations), and my wife!

    This is to you all of you !
