Former NFL running back Rashad Jennings to visit Bloomington’s Indian Mounds Elementary

Former NFL running back and Dancing with the Stars champion Rashad Jennings will visit Indian Mounds Elementary School, 9801 11th Ave. S., for an all-school assembly at 9:30 a.m. on Feb. 1. Due to security and space concerns, the assembly is strictly for Indian Mounds students and staff only.

Jennings has made it his mission to educate and inspire youth through his Rashad Jennings Reading Challenge, an incentive-based reading program that challenges students to pledge to read. The assembly will celebrate students completing the Reading Challenge. Jennings will visit with students and present Reading Challenge prizes.

Indian Mounds students are on target to meet their goal of reading 2,000 books during the month of January. For every book and assessment completed students are entered into a drawing to win prizes including signed merchandise, gift cards, pizza parties and more.

The Reading Challenge is presented by the Rashad Jennings Foundation and currently serves more than 20,000 students by partnering with NFL players from the 32 NFL teams who serve as Reading Challenge Ambassadors.
