The CCHS Foundation is sponsoring its first-ever Read-a-Thon in May 2017 to raise awareness and increase funding for important scientific research. We sincerely hope that you will be able to take part and help to make our fundraiser a success.
The Read-a-Thon runs from May 1st, 2017 through May 15th, 2017. On May 15th, the participant should total up the time spent reading and let his or her supporters know how much is owed.
Print your Read-a-Thon pledge sheet here. Then, all participants need to do is keep track of how much they read during the two week period. Participants can donate one dollar for every fifteen minutes they spend reading. They are also encouraged to find people to sponsor them as they read. Sponsors can either give a fixed amount at the end of the fundraising period, or pledge a certain amount for every fifteen minutes spent reading.
Anyone can participate. All they have to do is read!
Donations can be sent directly to the CCHS Foundation at www.cchsnetwork.org/donate. Otherwise, donations can be mailed in by the donor, or collected and mailed in by the Read-a-Thon participant. Please make checks payable to The CCHS Foundation. Our mailing address is PO Box 230087, Encinitas, CA 92023-0087.
Please use this Letter to approach members of your community to ask for their participation in the Read-a-Thon.
