We are very excited to announce that this summer our board member, Rachel Jamora will be training for her first marathon. She has decided to run the OC Half Marathon as part of TeamQuest and raise critical funds for the International Dyslexia Association (IDA).

Did you know 1 in 10 are affected by dyslexia? Your connection may be from a family member, student, client, neighbor, or colleague. We have committed to raise $2,800 for IDA by marathon day (May 7th, 2017) but we need your help to get to the finish line. Through the generosity of friends and family, we know we will succeed.

Your fundraising efforts help IDA create a better future for every child and adult who struggles with dyslexia and other reading difficulties. We focus on educating parents, teachers, and professionals about dyslexia, assuring that structured literacy is embedded in educator training and providing the opportunity for all people to learn to read.

Please consider making a contribution on our personal fundraising page by visiting http://idysa.convio.net/goto/racheljamora. Don’t forget to ask your employer if they have a matching gift program, another way to help reach our goal.

Thank you in advance for your support!
