7th Annual 5k Walk/Run for Literacy
Saturday, October 5th, 2019
2019 marks the Brunner Literacy Center’s 7th annual 5k to promote adult literacy education in Dayton!
Join us at 10:00 a.m. on Saturday, October 5th to walk, jog, or run our certified 5k course through beautiful Englewood MetroPark’s West Park to celebrate the joys of literacy, health, and community. Our course begins and ends at the Lawwill Shelter.
Plan to arrive 30-45 minutes early to check in at the registration table, get something to eat or drink, join in some pre-race exercise, listen to music, and visit with friends.
The three fastest men and women in each age bracket will be awarded medals at our closing ceremonies. Age brackets are divided into these groups:
- 19 years old and under
- 20-35 years old
- 36-50 years old
- 51-65 years old
- 66 years old and over
At the end of the race, we like to give away some goodies. Raffle prizes include cash awards of $500, $300, and $200. On top of that, some of our friends and sponsors donate other goodies to be given away. Past years’ prizes have included restaurant gift cards, gas station gift cards, fitness classes, fresh produce from A. Brown & Sons Nursery, and more!
Each 5k participant gets one free raffle ticket with registration. Additional tickets can be purchased at $5 for one (1) ticket and $25 for six (6) tickets. Tickets can be purchased in person at the BLC ahead of time or at the park on the day of the 5k. You do not need to be present to win the cash prizes. All proceeds benefit the BLC.

Calling all art lovers! The local nonprofit, We Care Arts, is hosting it’s first ever gallery show White Knight this Friday June 14th from 6-8pm at their Berkeley Center studio location at 3035 Wilmington Pike in Kettering. Kick off the weekend with exclusive art pieces, online bidding, a gallery shop and more! Not only are you getting original and unique art, you are supporting an impactful area nonprofit. All proceeds will empower artists to achieve their goals.
We Care Arts believes in the healing power of creating and producing art that transforms physical, developmental and mental health challenges into a future rich with possibilities. Since 1983, We Care Arts has been providing a caring and safe space for artists to engage in artistic exploration as they work through life’s challenges.
This debut dual exhibition show and reception will feature two Dayton-based artists, Teresa White and Mitchell Knight, from We Care Arts. Teresa White is a sculptor from Dayton, OH. She enjoys creating whimsical animal shapes, drawing inspiration from colors and forms in nature. She finds happiness in the process of developing each piece and sharing her art with others. Mitchell Knight is a painter from Dayton, OH. He graduated from Chaminade Julienne High School. Mitchell enjoys art because it allows him to focus on what he is creating and enjoy that moment. Mitchell specializes in abstract paintings on canvas, and is inspired by the lines and shapes found in art by Paul Klee.
Both artists attend programming at We Care Arts where they have developed collections. Teresa’s unique ceramic pieces have become quite popular at the studio. Mitchell creates modern acrylic paintings that have been quite popular among buyers. Mitchell also currently has a piece on display in the VSA Ohio’s Accessible Expressions Ohio statewide exhibition for 2019.

Many people believe that it was a common practice for pirates to “hide” their treasures in a treasure chest. Today, our treasures are often stolen from us by pirates who rob us of our self-esteem or tell us we are not enough. This session will:
identify those things which rob or impede us,
retrieve your values, traits and skills you have to offer & relate them to your purpose,
review tactics to extinguish self-doubt, and
develop an action plan for moving forward.
Join Robin Brun as she helps you to discover your hidden treasure chest of talents that you can leverage for the causes & the career you care about.
