READ with Malcolm

Welcome to the READ with Malcolm Virtual Reading Challenges and In-School Programs.

Here you are joining the Atlanta Speech School, the Cox Campus, and Share the Magic Foundation as we promote the excitement and joy of reading through innovative virtual reading challenges and in-school programs!

Why Read with Malcolm?

Author, Literacy Advocate, and Super Bowl Champion, Malcolm Mitchell founded Share the Magic Foundation in 2016 with a sole purpose: to transform the lives of children through literacy. We believe that literacy is the foundation for success in all areas of life. Through In-School Programming and Virtual Reading Challenges, our Read with Malcolm literacy programs offer an innovative approach to tackling the literacy crisis. Share the Magic Foundation focuses on young and striving readers – especially those who are reading below their grade level and are at risk of academic failure in under-resourced communities.



READMarathon is a friendly 26.2 day reading challenge that begins on October 6th and runs through November 1st, focusing on reading stamina. This challenge was designed to improve reading stamina by introducing students to reading persistence and debunking the stone age stereotype that reading is boring, in return giving kids the opportunity to enrich their lives with the benefits of reading in a fun environment. Registration for READMarathon opens Tuesday, September 8.
