Paige's Party with a Purpose

UPDATE 10/30- ONE DAY TO THE FINISH LINE

Concordia's Center for Literacy has received nearly 60 gifts and pledges to bring my current total to $4,835...just $165 short of my $5,000 goal!

This last bit feels a lot like the .2 of the 26.2 miles (which included the Roosevelt Road hill on the marathon course).

Perhaps you might consider a $1 for every mile I've run since the marathon. That's $20 to give the gift of literacy.

If I reach my total today, I will run tomorrow, Halloween Friday 10/31, in my costume. My training partner has pledged to document the effort, and we need to know if we need to set our alarm clocks.

Every gift of every size helps.

Sponsor a Mile on My Bookshelf

Below are 26 literary items that are important to me. Sponsor one of my marathon miles at $100 or more, and I'll donate a copy of your selection to your library or organization of choice

Mile 1 - The Bible Mile 2 - Little Visits With God Mile 3 - 3 in 1: A Picture of God Mile 4 - Madeline Mile 5 - Berenstain Bears (pick your fave!) Mile 6 - Little House on the Prairie Mile 7 - Beezus and Ramona Mile 8 - Fannie Farmer Cookbook Mile 9 - A Light in the Attic Mile 10 - Babysitters Club Series Mile 11 -I'll Love You Forever - Mary Hastings Mile 12 - Seasons of the Heart Mile 13 - Dr. Seuss (your fave) Mile 14 - Calvin and Hobbes Mile 15 - VeggieTales God Made You Special Mile 16 - The Homesick Cafe Mile 17 - Wicked Mile 18 - Cutting for Stone Mile 19 - East of Eden Mile 20 - Switch Mile 21 - Unbroken Mile 22 - Through the Desert Mile 23 - Marian Keyes (your fave) Mile 24 - The Riverside Shakespeare Anthology Mile 25 - Blue Like Jazz Mile 26 - Good to Great
