EVENT DATE: Mar 23, 2013
Andy Bria and I are organizing the EBS running team to help raise money for Newtown and those affected by the horrific tragedy at Sandy Hook Elementary School.
While this event touches everyone in some way, this is personal for both Andy and me. Andy grew up in Newtown and still has family and friends in the close community. He began running on the Newtown streets while in school. He is, in great part, a product of that community. For me, my wife’s aunt works in the Sandy Hook School. She knew most of the victims personally, some of them for many years. When talking to her about the events of that day, I felt I needed to do something to help.
Andy and I both work for EBS – a company that provides products and services to the Foreign Exchange industry. EBS is kindly sponsoring this event which will help cover the operating costs and ensure all the money donated goes straight to charity.
