Hi friends and family.
I'm running the 2012 NYC Marathon and I need your help!
I decided that if I was gonna go through this pain, I wanted to do it for a great cause so I'm raising money for an incredible organization called CampInteractive.
CI is a Bronx-based nonprofit that inspires inner-city kids to step back into nature and forward into technology. They execute their goals through a two-pronged program. First, CI takes students on outward-bound style adventure trips to open their minds and enhance leadership abilities. The students are outfitted with cameras, journals, and video equipment, and they are encouraged to record their experience. Upon returning to NYC, the students create a video, edit their photos, write stories, and build a website using their experience to fuel the content. This process gives students real-world applicable technology skills and the courage and leadership to use them. Here is a great video if you want to learn more about the program: https://vimeo.com/23972267
I really believe in CI’s mission - in fact, I also serve on CI's board of directors and regularly spend time with our team and kids at our Tech & Trek Center. This year, I have committed to raising $5,000 to keep our programs running. As part of my commitment to CI and our 2012 Marathon team, I will again personally match the funds raised on my Crowdrise page...I've kickstarted this year with my 'advance match', so please join me as we all work to reach our team goal.
Thank you on behalf of CI and all our Marathon team for your support!!
