Miles For Justice III

Reading is at risk! Fewer and fewer young adults are reading and subsequently fewer and fewer children are reading. It is reported that less than 20% of teens ever read a book on their own accord. The goal of this campaign is to make reading cool again and encourage those in marginalized communities to take an interest in books. A book can be life changing and lead to a life of prosperity. A wise man once said “all the secrets of the world are hidden inside the pages of a book.” This campaign aims to put those books right in the heart of the community, so that wisdom can seep out to uplift and unify the community.

Miles For Justice is a grassroots campaign led by Daryl Murphy in which he runs a 5k (3.1mi) every single day as a silent protest of systemic and systematic discrimination. He has run for more than 300+ consecutive days no matter the circumstances, through the summer heat and winter snow. The 5k a day run streak was born during the coronavirus global shutdown and Miles For Justice came of age during the summer social uprisings. This is the third Miles For Justice campaign and the objective of Miles For Justice III (MFJ3) is to raise $10,000 to bring 10 Little Free Libraries filled with representative books into communities of need. All books that are not donated will be purchased from local independent bookstores to fully stock each Little Free Library. Each library will be dedicated to an individual who lost their life prematurely to a tragic act of unneeded violence and each library will be placed in a location with ample foot traffic that’s easily accessible for all members of the community.

At the start of MFJ3 the 5k run streak stands at 265 days and should extend to 334 consecutive days by the end of the campaign. Barring injury he expects to run approximately 400 miles which equates to about 40-50 miles per week. As a supporter you can make a donation based on the number of miles run or a flat donation or both.

This installment of Miles For Justice will leave a lasting impact on our communities. These libraries will be a permanent fixture where all members of the community can take and leave books as they choose. Each library initially will be stocked with books representative of the people and needs of those who live in the community. Please pledge a donation if you are able and everyone please share this campaign with family, friends and associates. Miles For Justice III. #MFJ3
