Here's a cause that's new to Joe, and one that is certainly worthy of promotion: the Dash for Dyslexia, an opportunity to stretch your legs, have some family fun, and support a great cause! Come on down to The Mast Landing School in Freeport at 9am on Sunday April 7th to walk/run a 15K, 5K, or Family Story Walk, and stay for a pancake breakfast and festivities afterwards. All proceeds support the Children's Dyslexia Center - Portland, which provides FREE tutoring to dyslexic students and FREE teacher training to educators.
The mission of the Children's Dyslexia Center is to provide, free of charge, the highest quality, state-of-the art, multisensory tutorial reading and written language instruction to children with dyslexia, and also to train tutors in the art, science, and practice of tutoring children using the Orton-Gillingham approach to multisensory teaching of reading, spelling, and writing. Joe applauds the great work this organization does, and hopes you consider joining them for this year's Dash!
