Riding for Reading

On June 12, 2018, Michael Davies-Hughes and his support crew (Team Red Dragon) will embark on a journey of a lifetime. Michael will be competing in the solo division of the Race Across America (RAAM), a 3,000-mile coast-to-coast bicycle race from Oceanside, CA to Annapolis, MD. The race is widely regarded as the toughest test of endurance in the world (Outside magazine).

As an educator for almost 25 years Michael has come to understand that early literacy skills are essential in providing children a springboard to success in school and in life. Early childhood development, especially in the areas of reading and math, directly influences economic health and social outcomes for individuals and society.

This is why Michael has chosen the Decade of Difference's Early Literacy Partners Program as the beneficiary of his fundraising efforts. If you'd like to support Michael and the Early Literacy Partners Program, click the button below to donate!
