For the first time ever, our event will be held at the new Aquatics Park in Batesville, AR. Kids will run, swim, and splash to support adults in North Central Arkansas who are learning to read and speak English.The Ozark Foothills Literacy Project serves Fulton, Sharp, Izard, and Independence counties in Arkansas. Our mission is to empower adults and improve communities through literacy. One in five adults in our area are unable to read which greatly affects them on a daily basis. Adults who struggle with reading may also struggle with their health, employment, and aiding their children in school. Low literacy rates are linked to higher poverty levels, poorer health, an increased crime rate, and lower levels of success for children whose parents cannot read.By participating in a day of family fun with your child, you're giving other families a chance to succeed by breaking the cycles of poverty and illiteracy. On behalf of the board, staff, volunteers, and students of OFLP, we thank you!
