Hey everyone! I am running the NYC Half Marathon for a non-profit called Camp Interactive. At first I was just going to run it because I needed some motivation to get back in a running schedule after finally getting over a training injury in early 2011. BUT then I realized this is an awesome cause!
Camp interactive does two things that are near and dear to my heart. First they teach kids how to use technology creatively and also gets them out doors. As a computer science grad with a MA in film I love the programs that they are teaching kids. Then getting them out doors as well speaks to my growing up in Boy Scouts. I can't think of a better program to be running for. I can't think of two better ways to give underprivileged kids in NYC a literal way to get out of their environment and way to get out in the future with tangible skills

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.
