Greater Victoria readers may want to book off August for an upcoming challenge by Victoria Literacy Connection they’re bound to enjoy.
The literacy group is calling on residents – book worms and reluctant readers alike – to spend the next month flipping pages for a cause. Participants of the Book Bash challenge will be asked to set a reading target and collect pledges from friends and family for every 100 pages they complete.
Money raised from the event will go directly to Victoria Literacy Connection’s free literacy programs for children, youth and adults in the region.
Participants will also be entered to win a number of prizes. Those interested can register by visiting victorialiteracyconnection.ca and heading to the “support” section.
