More than 100 runners of all ages and backgrounds were ready to go at Royal Palm Beach Commons Park on Saturday, Nov. 18, in support of the Palm Beach County Imagination Library. The local chapter is part of the national program created by Dolly Parton that gives children one free book every month from birth up to age five. The program has gifted more than 200 million books around the world. The title sponsor for this year’s Run for Reading 5K was the Annette Urso Rickel Foundation.
