Ride for Reading, which works to promote literacy and healthy living through the distribution of books via bicycle to children from low-income neighborhoods, is getting support from CST.
CST is sponsoring a Ride for Reading delivery, scheduled to coincide with Interbike, through donations of tires and tubes, which will be used as prizes for volunteers. The Interbike delivery is slated to involve more than 100 volunteers, who will distribute an estimated 1,500 books to students at Las Vegas-area elementary schools. The delivery will mark an important milestone for the organization: At some point during the event, according to Ride for Reading, the group will deliver its 100,000th book.
The prize donations are not the first gesture of support CST has made toward Ride for Reading. Earlier this year, the company sponsored a book drive for the organization at CST’s corporate office in Suwanee, Georgia.
CST is proud to support Ride for Reading and commends this fine organization for its work with young people across the U.S.
