Gadsden Middle School’s Library is planning a “For the Love of Books” 5K run on Saturday, February 6, 2010 at the middle school campus.  An Elev8 health fair will be held in conjunction to promote a “healthy body and mind” event.  Proceeds from the run will benefit the library.  With the financial crisis so many schools are facing, the library is taking an active role to raise money to purchase books and equipment to maintain a high level of current reading/research materials and technology.


Some of the items we could use for the event are listed below.  We appreciate your consideration in making an in kind donation to help our cause.



Bags for a “goodie bag” provided to all walkers and runners

Food items such as juice, fruit, cheese sticks, burritos, bagels

Paper goods such as napkins, plates, plastic silverware

Magnets, pencils, pens, keyrings, notepads

Free coupons/tickets

Sponsorship of a student or adult who would like to participate but cannot financially afford it




Thank you for your support.
