For kids whose lives have been upended by violence, JWI's National Library Initiative creates new children's libraries in domestic violence shelters nationwide to provide a safe place to relax, escape into a book, and keep up with homework.
Our Young Women's Leadership Network is organizing a 5K to raise funds for a JWI library at a shelter in Washington, D.C. The fun run will be Sunday, October 29th starting at 10:30 a.m. at the Georgetown Waterfront Park.
Registration is $36, plus we ask that you bring one new children's book to the event. We also encourage each runner to create a personal fundraising page and raise at least $150 to help us reach our $5,000 goal!
