READING WITH THE ROADRUNNERS
The Topeka RoadRunners have partnered with Dickey’s BBQ to create the Reading with the RoadRunners program. Throughout the season, RoadRunners players are available to visit local schools, read to students, and discuss the importance of education and hard work. This unique opportunity affords school children the ability to meet and engage with RoadRunner players who, themselves, are endeavoring towards a college education. Following each session, students will be given special Dickie’s BBQ bookmarks. If the students complete five books assigned by their teacher, they can redeem the bookmark for a free kids meal at Dickie’s BBQ. Reading with the RoadRunners is just a small part of the organization’s mission to give back to the Topeka community and grow our players into mature and responsible citizens. If you would like your school involved in the reading with the RoadRunners program, call 785-286-7825 or visit our offices at 1800 SW Exoduster Blvd.
