Newton Running is proud to have sponsored the 2009 Union Tribune Race for Literacy weekend in San Diego on May 2-3.  All proceeds from the weekend will go to the San Diego Council on Literacy, an organization that in the past year provided over 71,000 children and 46,000 adults with free literacy assistance.

The weekend drew over 6,000 children and adults to participate in the kids’ Magic Mile race as well as the 8K all in effort to fight for literacy.
