My dad loved the outdoors, particularly the Adirondacks. Over the years, he introduced countless family members and friends to the outdoors, inspiring a love of fresh air activities in many he came in contact with. He was famous for responding, when asked about how much was left in a long hike, "just a little bit further". We lost Dad in 2010, so it is in his memory that I will be running the 2012 NYC Half Marathon for Camp Interactive, an organization that gives kids the opportunity to experience something my dad held dear.

Through a unique year-round program, CampInteractive introduces the creative power of technology and the inspiration of the outdoors to underprivileged inner-city youth. Our vision is to use positive experiences to broaden horizons and empower young people to believe in themselves and their futures!
Using both technology and the environment as educational tools, CampInteractive addresses two problems that an underfunded American public educational system faces: providing kids with technological skills for the 21st century, and instilling a sense of community where teamwork and self-confidence can flourish.
Your support will help us continue to develop and create programs that inspire kids to reach for their full potential.
