Thank you to all who participated or volunteered in the Wicomico County Public Schools 2nd Annual Race for Literacy at Perdue Stadium on Saturday. This event supported fitness and wellness, and brought together people from throughout the county to donate books to boost literacy in Title I schools. WCPS presented this event in partnership with Wicomico Public Libraries and the Delmarva Shorebirds.
We hope to have even more 5K runners and 1-mile fun run/walk participants at the 3rd annual race in 2019!
