    This Fall, we Run For Knowledge.  We invite our supporters in U.S. cities to run & walk in Rock n' Roll Half Marathon, 10K & 5K races to expand our digital library to children who need it most. Every team member will be asked to set a $750 minimum fundraising goal to support Library For All. Children across the developing world deserve a quality education and the opportunity to learn, dream, and aspire to lift themselves out of poverty.
