The Story

EVENT DATE: Jul 10, 2016

ILA believes in the transformative power of literacy, and at the ILA 2016 Conference & Exhibits in Boston, we’re taking this commitment to the next level—by hitting the streets at the Steps to Advance Literacy 5K!


We invite our attendees, exhibitors, members, sponsors, and all literacy enthusiasts in the Boston area to run or walk in our first annual 5K fun run on Sunday, July 10. Join us as we go the distance to advance literacy for everyone, everywhere.


Through our collective steps, we will help transform lives through literacy.


Hosting the Steps to Advance Literacy 5K is one of ILA’s many strides to further the cause of literacy at this year’s conference. Funds raised from this event will benefit ILA local and international literacy initiatives.


Because the ILA 2016 Conference is in Boston, ILA is working with the Boston chapter of Reach Out and Read. Reach Out and Read gives children a foundation for success by incorporating books into pediatric care and encouraging families to read aloud together.
