The NBA and the Minnesota Timberwolves take part in “Read to Achieve”, a year-round literacy program campaign to help young people develop a life-long love of reading and to encourage adults to read regularly with children.

Reaching an estimated 50 million children a year, Read to Achieve is the most extensive educational outreach initiative in the history of professional sports. Locally, the program consists of a Starting Five reading program, Reading Time Outs, the refurbishment and creation of Reading and Learning Centers, and book donations.

Ryan Gomes recently participated in a “Read to Achieve Reading Timeout” at Gillette Children’s hospital last week.
