Annual literacy walk is set

The annual Bill Gallagher Memorial/AHEF 5K Fun Run/Walk for Literacy will take place at Anoka High School, 3939 Seventh Ave. N., Saturday, April 6.

Same-day registration starts at 8 a.m., the pre-school race starts at 8:30 a.m. and the run/walk event at 9 a.m.

All of the money raised goes to Anoka-Hennepin School District schools to support literacy in proportion to the number of participants from that school.

Children participating receive a free book.

Stop in at an Anoka-Hennepin school office to get a paper form or go to to register online.

Registration prices are $20 per adult, $10 per student, with a household cap of $50.

Call Tess DeGeest at the AHEF office (763-506-1105) with any questions.
