Historia del Maratón

Desde hace 8 años, la Fundación Leer auspicia la Maratón de Lectura en Argentina (http://maraton.leer.org/), evento que convoca a toda la comunidad lectora de dicho país y que ha trascendido fronteras.

En Puerto Rico, para octubre de 2006, maestros de la Escuela Elemental de la Universidad de Puerto Rico (EEUPR) conocieron del evento y decidieron unirse a él. Reconociendo la importancia del desarrollo del amor por la lectura, “corrieron la voz” e invitaron a diferentes comunidades escolares. La Asociación Puertorriqueña de Lectoescritura (APULEC) también se unió a este maravilloso esfuerzo. Así surgió el 1er Maratón Puertorriqueño de Lectura, celebrado el 20 de octubre de 2006, con el cual se inscribió a Puerto Rico por primera vez en la Maratón de Lectura de Argentina.

 

 

Este año VERNET se unió al 5to Maratón.
