‘Insurance runs’ a hit for Literacy Network

Literacy-Network-GCFThose “insurance runs” scored by the Cincinnati Reds hold special meaning for a local non-profit dedicated to teaching adults and children to read.

Each time the Reds score during the sixth, seventh and eighth innings of a winning home game, the Literacy Network receives $250 from Great American Insurance, with a two-year total of $30,750.  

The Literacy Network offers free classes and one-on-one tutoring to adults who read below fourth grade level. Specialized classes for children with severe reading deficiencies are held in schools, and more than 1,800 trained tutors work with K-6 students. The Literacy Network is also home of Winners Walk Tall, a character building program for youth.
