For the third year, SHARP Literacy held its “Kids Run to Read” event at the Summerfest Rock ‘n Sole Run on June 11, 2016. The run allowed children ages 3 to 12 to participate in a race alongside a larger running event. The small athletes were given an opportunity to experience a “real race” for the first time.
The run raised funds for SHARP literacy, and Hupy and Abraham, S.C. was a sponsor for the event. SHARP provides children in the Milwaukee area opportunities to improve their reading and writing skills, and supports the children’s academic efforts so they stay in school.
Hupy and Abraham, S.C. has sponsored a number of SHARP events in the past, including “A Novel Event” luncheon, which is the organization’s largest fundraising event of the year. The firm supports several educational programs and schools throughout the Midwest to ensure that children in the area are receiving the education they deserve. Over the past three years, the firm has donated over $500,000 to more than 250 organizations.
