Update on the 2020 Walk for Dyslexia during the COVID-19 Crisis
We are closely monitoring recommendations from health authorities and adjusting accordingly. We are making plans to move to a virtual event if necessary. We hope that you will participate in and support our event whether it takes place in person or virtually. This event remains our largest fundraiser of the year and the funds it raises are still critical to our ability to provide our life-changing services to children with dyslexia.

We have a new location as of 2018!

We have relocated our annual walk to Brittingham Park, 829 W Washington Ave, Madison, in 2018. Brittingham Park is easy to find, has a large shelter house, some new children's playground equipment, and a nice view of Monona Bay.

It was chilly and looked like rain, but our 2017 Walk for Dyslexia-Madison was not impaired! 

Here our participants begin their 5K walk in spite of the clouds and cool breeze.

Thanks to all our sponsors, teams, pledge earners, and volunteers for making the 2017 walk a success.

We raised $25,000 for the Children's Dyslexia Center-Madison on May 20, 2017.
