Read-a-Thon 2024!


Unleash Your Reading Power and Game On! Let’s Get Ready for Read-a-Thon!

We’re excited to work with 99Pledges again to collect sponsorships. It allows families to easily share their reader’s fundraising page with friends and family. Donors will be able to contribute safely and securely through the fundraising website, 99pledges.

In order to do this, we need some basic information to set up a page for each participant. Click the link below to register your student(s):

Here is the link:

PLEASE NOTE: You will have to fill out a form for each student. After you submit your responses, you’ll be able to go back and submit another form for another student. Please use a parent email address. CPS emails assigned to children filter out all emails from us and 99Pledges!

You’ll receive an email for each student around February 21st from 99Pledges. This email will contain information on how to claim your fundraising page for each child, and how to get started collecting pledges from friends and family.

Important dates as we look forward to Read-a-thon:


  • Now – February 19 – sign your reader(s) up for Read-a-thon!
  • February 21st – 99Pledges fundraising pages will be set up and an email will go to each parent for their child.
  • February 23 – March 8 – Read-a-Thon!! Readers of all ages (including our youngest pre-school readers!) are encouraged to participate. All reading counts – reading independently, being read to, listening to audiobooks, watching videos of people reading. It all counts!

More information about Read-a-Thon will be shared in the coming weeks. If you have any questions, please contact Read-a-Thon co-chairs Beth DeLay and Kristin Neidich at
