Gamers Read .5k (500 m) Walk/Run/Sprint aims to bring the gaming, cosplay, anime, and running communities and their families together to advocate for literacy, especially among youth in grades K-5. This event also celebrates National Video Games Day. Literacy is a critical skill for success in society, and eSports careers such as game design & development, comic book creation, shoutcasting/streaming, and eSports journalism all require well-developed literacy skills. Gamers Read .5k (500m) Walk/Run/Sprint is sponsored by PCX GO!, a 501(c)(3) whose mission is to prepare K-16 youth for eSports careers through informing, instructing, and educating youth around eSports career pathways.
Participants can complete virtually from now through the end of the year (September 9, 2023 - December 31, 2023).
