Churchill Downs helps Every 1 Reads program

Churchill Downs is helping a local reading program as it nears the finish line.  Monday morning, the Churchill Downs Foundation donated $100,000 to Every 1 Reads, the ambitious program to get every local student reading at or above grade level.

The contribution was made at Semple Elementary, a school near the racetrack where some Downs employees volunteer.

The contribution will help Every 1 Reads reach its goal of raising $8 million over a four-year period.

Next month, coordinators will announce a plan to continue the program beyond 2008.
