Not So Normal Race Weekend

“Because normal isn’t good enough!”  That’s the slogan of the Not So Normal Race series held in Carrboro, NC each spring.  In the winter of 2016, race director Jay Radford approached First Pages about benefiting from their race’s book collection efforts.  So on Saturday, April 1st First Pages volunteers set up a table to accept donated book as part of the race packet pick-up.


We weren’t sure how many books to expect and were grateful for any donations, as always.  So we were absolutely blown away by the generosity of these runners!

These Not So Normal runners donated hundreds of books to give to kids in Durham.  These runners CRUSHED normal!  Check out some of the photos below:
