Dennis Yang is running across the United States to promote literacy. He established the Papa Didos Ideals Foundation, which is committed to helping children discover the joy of reading, especially the disadvantaged and at-risk youth. Yang speaks four languages, and reads and writes three of them. He says, ‘Being able to read and write opens doorways to many worlds.’ Papa Didos has written more than 100 books for children, each containing adventure, conflict, characters and a lesson or two. For more information, visit www.papadidos.org Yang left Long Beach, Calif., Feb. 10. While passing through Warsaw Tuesday evening, Yang was provided a complimentary room by the Ramada Plaza. He plans to reach Coney Island, N.Y., by Aug. 1.
