Walk for Literacy 2021

July 18 - July 24

Join us in July for our first Walk for Literacy! The Literassociates’ Walk for Literacy aims to raise money for the CLA’s mission of creating a 100% literate Chicago.

Participants are encouraged to raise $100 each to participate in the 5k. Walkers can fundraise together in teams for support and to pool fundraising efforts. To start or join a team, check out the official page here. Each participant will receive a GiveLively page to solicit donations. These pages will be connected to a team page where members can track the fundraising progress of all teammates. All donations must be submitted by July 24th 11:59pm.

We hope to spread the CLA’s mission and your reason for walking with us! You can shop event tee shirts here. Feel free to share pictures of your walk using the hashtag #WalkForLiteracy on Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter, and don’t forget to tag the CLA!

Due to COVID-19 and social distancing practices, the Walk for Literacy is DIY. Participants must complete their 5k between July 18-24. There is no required route and participants can complete the 5k anywhere they choose. Walkers are free to make their own route, or plan a route based on Chicago’s literary landmarks.
