Many Voices, Many Visions "Summer of Dreams/Heritage Hero 5k"
July 16, 2017 —
This week, summer means warm weather and vacations. It’s also an opportunity to help close the achievement gap between low and middle income students using reading skills. There’s an important initiative called the "Summer of Dreams" that hopes to do just that. It's a partnership between the Center for Youth and the Rochester City School District. Also on the show this week is Heritage Christian Services. The organization is preparing for its annual Celebration of Heroes. The Heritage Hero 5k and Mile Stroll and Roll in August salutes those who make life a little brighter for those with developmental delays. The event will be held this year at the Monroe Community College campus. We'll meet one of the families taking part.
