Run or walk the beautiful Fairmont Park, which was designed by Frederick Olmsted, who also designed Central Park and Prospect Park in New York City. The park features rose gardens, several lakes, a bandshell, and the historic boathouse.
The goal of the 5K Dash is to raise funds to aid on-going programs in four major areas: information, referrals, conferences, workshops.
Literacy issues (poor reading and writing skills) are a national public health concern because of the impact they have on social skills, employment, and especially self-esteem.
