TECH STRONG FOR BOSTON | Visit teaminteractive.org for the full story
We are a group of tech CEOs and Executives running the 2014 Boston Marathon to support the city of Boston, for those whose lives were forever changed by last year’s tragedy, and to raise funds for CampInteractive (CI) and its mission to inspire the next generation of technology leaders from underserved communities.
We are very proud to have Dennis Crowley the CEO of FourSquare and Bijan Sabet of Spark Capital co-leading our team in 118th Boston Marathon on April 21, 2014 to benefit CI. The rest of the team includes: Joe Marchese (CEO of TrueX), Ryan Sarver (Partner at Redpoint Ventures), Toby Daniels (Co-founder & CEO at Crowdcentric), and Craig Meisner (Executive Director Emeritus at CI). This year’s goal is to raise at least $60,000, and we hope to raise much more.
With the funds raised in the 2013 Boston Marathon, CI was able to launch our summer internship program (SummerQAmp.org) in Boston. This program is a nationwide initiative which provides American youth with technology training, professional development, and experiential learning through a professional internship experience in quality assurance.
All money raised will go directly to funding technology education, experiential leadership experiences, and paid summer internships that will have a powerful impact on CI’s students’ potential to participate in the technology revolution.
