Run, walk or jog with us to support the Newspapers In Education program on Saturday, October 9, 2021. The Press Run features certified Galveston Causeway 5K and 10K courses, a Kid's 1K sponsored by Whataburger, a book character costume contest, dozens of vendor booths, music, food and much more. We have a big event planned!
The Whataburger Kids Zone is back! The kid zone will offer your kiddos a safe environment, filled with bouncy houses, arts and crafts, face painting and more. Stations will be managed for small groups of kids.
Support Newspapers in Education
The Daily News Press Run provides support to the Newspapers in Education (NIE) program. NIE provides educational resources that use the newspaper to develop reading comprehension skills, critical thinking and a better understanding of the way the world relates to the classroom. There is a waiting list of teachers each year who want to join. We need your help to make the program a success for the upcoming school year.
