Update: The team deadline has now passed. However, please consider supporting this race that funds grants for technology for Dane Country nonprofit organizations by signing up as an individual if you are interested in participating. Thank you!
If you are interested, PLEASE sign up to join Team "Country View Goes for the Gold" at the 2015 Berbee Derby on Thanksgiving morning. You can walk a 5k, run a 5k, or even run a 10k! We had a team of about 40+ people last year and it really helped our chances when turning in a grant to the Berbee Derby, asking for educational funds. The run/walk raises quite a bit of money for technology in schools ($688,000 in the past 10 years to be exact). Absolutely 100% of the money raised by the Derby goes directly into schools. That money is dispersed in grants, which allow for some schools to purchase technology that may not be feasible with their current tech budgets. Due to our large participation last year, and a fantastically written grant application, we were given a check to make a new purchase for this year (way to go Katie A.!). We just received a brand new 3D printer for our makerspace!
We would love tobe able to gather a large team to participate this year, but we do need participants to sign up by October 28th. It is a very fun start to your Thanksgiving morning, and it also makes you feel better about walking back into the kitchen for your turkey sandwich later that evening :)
