Improving literacy is one way we heal our family, our community and our city.  The Healing Races of Memphis aims to bring awareness to illiteracy.




TIME:    9:00 A.M.






According to research:  In Memphis, 1 in 7 adults do not read above a 6th grade level and, on top of that, only 24.1% of students complete the 3rd grade reading on grade level. The struggles that come with low literacy are far-reaching, straining not only the individual but the entire community.


Let's Race to Help Our Children Read!
