Occasionally you have a moment when you realize it’s time to do something you’ve never attempted before - something you previously thought to be unthinkable.
A couple of months ago, this happened to me. And so it happened that I decided to run the 2013 NYC Marathon on November 3rd.
More importantly, I found the perfect group to run it with. Actually, I really can’t imagine an organization with a vision that’s better aligned with my own personal values. It’s called Camp Interactive, and it’s a group that provides city kids with the technical knowledge to compete in our present world of rapid, and computerized, innovation.
In order to give back to the NYC tech/startup community, and to support Camp Interactive in their mission of teaching youth to code, for the next month leading up to the race I’m donating 100% of the proceeds from my standard engineering PR consultation directly to Camp Interactive.
