So how was the Award Ceremony?
Read-a-thon 2015 was spectacular. We can't wait for Read-a-thon 2016!
What did we have this year?
164 participants! Including 5 adults & 19 teens!
2,328 books read! 97,516 pages read!
18,000 NIS raised!
On a more personal note, I want to share what I felt handing out prizes at our tenth annual Read-a-thon:
Watching all those kids come up to the stage I thought of each form they handed in with its laborious handwriting. I saw their faces flushed with excitement, eyes shining with pride at their accomplishments. That is the moment that I know that all the work that I have done is worth it.
Israel's future is standing beside me - a true teacher moment. Parents, sponsors, teachers - thank you for all your support and encouragement you gave to A.H.A.V.A. and the kids to make READATHON 2015 happen!
