Sick Kids Foundation Read-A-Thon



  • Upon registering (making the registration fee payment) for a “Sick Kids Foundation Read-A-Thon” event, the family of the participant will receive a digital participant information handbook via email shortly afterwards.
  • For the first two weeks of the event: The participant and his/her family members will gather donations using their own online fundraising campaign page to raise funds for the Sick Kids Foundation. If you haven’t done so already, please click on “Additional Information” tab below to set up your online fundraising campaign page.
  • After the first two weeks of fundraising: The participant will receive via email which will have your login information for your reading log program as well as how many minutes you are to read for the duration of reading part of the event after the fundraising part of the event is over. The “Read-A-Thon” part of the event does not need to start the following day. It can start whenever your family has the time and is ready to read!
  • During the following month: The participant begins reading and logs in his/her minutes in their Mind Growth Education’s reading log program account until they’ve reached their reading goal!
