Robert’s Run for Dyslexia 5K @ Maquet's Rail House
Jun 23 @ 7:30 am
Robert's Run for Dyslexia 5K @ Maquet's Rail House | Pekin | Illinois | United States

In 2014, a motivated 17 year old, Robert Lawrence, started Robert’s Run for Dyslexia as his Eagle Scout project. The 5K/1 mile walk/kids fun run event is geared to educate the community and spread awareness. Robert was diagnosed with dyslexia in the second grade and was tutored at the Center in fourth grade for 2 years. He credits the Center and his tutor for significantly impacting his life.

Robert has since achieved many successes! Robert graduated high school as a member of The National Honor Society. He ran varsity cross country for Pekin High School and was a singer-dancer for “The Notables” Pekin Show Chorus. Currently he is attending college and plays an important role on the board of DAN as a student representative, and stays very active in fundraising for the Center that is dedicated to serving students like him.

All money raised goes to a scholarship fund built to assist families with tuition for tutoring.
