We have a new location in 2018!

Our usual location at Vilas Park will be undergoing renovations in 2018 and will not be available for us to use. We are relocating 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 breez.

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.

Thanks go out to all the Children's Dyslexia Center - Madison students who participated in our T-shirt artwork contest this year. All participants are winners by helping to spread the word about dyslexia! The artwork chosen to be on our 2018 Walk for Dyslexia-Madison event was created by Lola T.

Below are all the runner-up entries, and you can see much though and creativity was put into the work.
