Read, Deed, Run

  • What is Read, Deed, and Run? 

    • RDR is an all-encompassing program for the WHOLE child.
    • Students in grades 4 & 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 2600 pages.
    • Books read in school can count towards the reading requirement.
    • Books must be at the student's reading level.
    • Records of the books read will be kept in the student's RDR book. 

    Deed Requirement:

    • Students are required to perform 26 deeds in or for the community.
    • one deed = one hour of service​
