BENEFITING: SCRIPTED INC
As you may know, I volunteer with ScriptEd, teaching web development classes twice a week to high school students in a couple of under-resourced schools in Brooklyn. The organization services some 35 schools across New York City.
Our hope is that the combination of coding skills and professional experiences will enable students to access technology careers that would otherwise be unavailable to them. ScriptEd is an amazing organization, and in order to help them grow to serve more kids, I'm competing in the New York City Triathlon on July 16, 2017. I'm doing the bike leg in a relay with two other volunteers. It's 25 miles up the West Side Highway in Manhattan and the Bronx. I expect to get smoked by some fancy bikes but it should be fun anyway.
I hope to raise $2,000 to benefit ScriptEd. Funds raised will enable us to hold more classes, recruit more volunteers, arrange more internships, hold more hackathons, and ultimately provide more services to students across NYC.
Any amount will help!
Thanks so much. To learn more about ScriptEd, check out our website: www.scripted.org
