Students commit to completing 10 reading sessions, ranging from 10-30 minutes a day for 10 days. They can choose any book they want to read. 

Readers will build a personal Read-A-Thon page with their parents that will include two elements. It includes a dashboard to help readers and their families stay up to date with all Read-A-Thon information and tools. The other page is the Reader Donation Page. This is the page readers will tell friends and family about their reading adventure. This is the page that asks those people to make a one-time donation to support the reader.
