Welcome to the 6th Annual Bunny Hop 5K! The race helps us buy books to help spread the love of reading in our school and community. Proceeds will benefit the Riverside Elementary School Reading Is Fun program and the Emporia NEA Read to Your Bunny project. Books are given to all students at the school at different times throughout the year, and the Read to Your Bunny project has delivered Rosemary Wells’ book, Read to Your Bunny, to nearly 5400 Emporia babies since the program began.
