Would you like to join me in making a difference? On March 15th, I will be running the NYC Half Marathon on behalf of SuitUp, an organization that I am very proud to be partnering with!
Established in 2014, SuitUp is a 501(c)(3) education non-profit organization that strives to close the opportunity gap that plagues low-income communities. To increase college and career awareness for students, SuitUp runs business competitions in which students experience solving a realistic corporate challenge, such as designing a new product for Nike or creating a new phone case for Apple. With the help of volunteers from corporations, students learn how to market, finance, and create strategy for a new product, and ultimately prepare a pitch that is presented to judges. At the end of each competition, students can see the corporate world as part of “their world” and know that job titles, such as CEO, VP of Marketing, Business Development Manager, etc. are in their grasp.
My goal is to raise $2,000 and I highly appreciate any donation, big or small! Thank you :)
