I am pleased to support this effort, and I look forward to the great impact Kids Running for Kids will have on our students.” Dr. Don Stockton, Superintendent, Conroe Independent School District
“As the parents of two school age sons, Cathy and I appreciate the bridge between a child’s classroom and a family’s living room. Read For a Better Life is a huge part of that bridge and strengthens the partnership between teachers and parents. We are pleased to support the Kids Running for Kids race benefiting Read for Better Life.” Kevin Brady, U.S. Congressman
“As a father of two Conroe ISD graduates, I have personally witnessed how promoting a culture of reading motivates students. As a school board member, I have received great joy reading to students in support of the CISD “Read For A Better Life” campaign. Research proves that reading to a student has a tremendous impact on their success in learning. I am proud to support the Kids Running For Kids race to benefit student’s success in our community.” Ray Sanders, President and Chief Credit Officer, Woodforest National Bank, CISD School Board Member
“Regular mental stimulation through reading and regular physical activity give children a healthy start in life and a strong likelihood of success in school. I support Kids Running for Kids because it is a positive reinforcement, for school-age children, of the importance of maintaining a balanced, healthy lifestyle.” Joel Deretchin Former Vice President of The Woodlands Development Company
“As father of school age kids myself, I have seen and experienced the direct correlation between reading, learning and physical health and how each fosters a love for the other. Kids Running for Kids and Read for a Better Life encourage this balance and inspire children to live a life that is bigger than their own.” Frankie Mazzapica Celebration Church of The Woodlands, Sr. Pastor
