Read, Deed, Run (RDR) is an all-encompassing program for the WHOLE child. Students in grades 4 and 5 commit to a 26-week program in which they will read 26 books (or 2600 pages), perform 26 good deeds in the community, and run a total of 26.2 miles. Students run their final 1.2 miles in a "race" to earn their finisher's t-shirt and medal.
Read Requirement: Students are required to read 26 books or 2,600 pages. Books read in school can count towards the reading requirement and books must be at the student's reading level. Books read will be recorded in the student's Read, Deed, Run (RDR) book.
Deed Requirement: Students are required to perform 26 deeds in or for the community. One deed equals one hour of service. Deed opportunities will be communicated throughout the program. A Deed opportunity is NEVER required, it is completely up to the student and their family to decide if they wish to participate.
Run Requirement: Students are required to run a total of 25 miles throughout the course of the program. On running days, students will run a mile on a course supervised by coaches. Staff will be with students at all times. Students will need to dress appropriately--shorts, t-shirts, and tennis shoes.
