Our first ever Read for Ruben Challenge was a huge success! Our readers committed to reading for at least 15 minutes a day for 20 days in a row, while getting pledges for their efforts.
Their enthusiasm inspired us, their photos excited us and their fundraising efforts blew us away.
They raised.... (drum roll please.... )
Just under $4000 for Ruben's Shoes Society!!!
We are so thankful for their efforts.
We had some fun challenges during the readathon and our readers rose to the occasion.
Here are our winners:
The Most Money Raised:
Alex raised $1248 which is enough to send 2 students to school for an entire year!!! Thank you, Alex!
The Most Creative Place to Read:
We were impressed with photos of Oliver reading while climbing a mountain ropes course and while skimboarding!
The Participation Award:
We look forward to seeing you at the Second Annual Read for Ruben in 2022!!!
