Thanks to the hard work of the Equal Footing Foundation, a long list of corporate donors and (most appreciatively) the 600 runners who took part, our recent Run! Geek! Run! 8K event raised $14,000 for Equal Footing.
Equal Footing seeks to increase access to computer learning and resources for young people in disadvantaged local communities. With the fourth running of the race on Sept. 17, more than $70,000 has been raised to date for the foundation. Welz & Weisel Communications, a hi tech PR agency, first launched the event in 2008.
