Run for the Gold, July 22, 2017

2017 Registration Online
2017 Information Brochure

"Run for Gold" is a one mile run, walk, or race for literacy! This one-mile fun run is family friendly. We will be giving away real gold this year (2017) at the end of the race and before the Golden Days Parade starts. Have fun with your family leading off the Golden Days Parade and then stick around to watch the parade. All particpants receive five free books at Forget-Me-Not Books! The race starts each year at 9:50am and travels the parade route.  You can run in front cheering spectators, have fun while exercising, and win great prizes! The idea began with Jim Brader, a former LCA Board member. This event is sponsored by Alyeska Pipeline Service Company and organized by the Running Club North.

Thank you to all of the businesses & organizations who contributed to this event and also to everyone who registered & participated in this race.

LCA Book Drive - Thank You Magic 101.1fm

This is an annual event that takes place in March. The book drive collects thousands of books each year that are placed back into the community through our Book Recycling Program. To find the location of the drop boxes, tune into 101.1 FM Clear Channel, Fairbanks, or contact LCA. 

Thank you Fairbanks!  Every year the community has donated over 20,000 books to help support Forget-Me-Not Books and the Literacy Council of Alaska!

The Great Cover-Up

This fund-raiser was created by UAF. Each spring, a "cover" concert is held at UAF with local bands playing the songs and imitating the style of a well-known band. All proceeds benefit LCA.

The Great Cover-Up is held at the UAF Pub.
