CapTech will be participating in the Hike for Kids to benefit Blue Sky Fund on October 28. All of the hike distances will feature some of the best urban hiking in the country in Richmond, VA.
Blue Sky is on a mission to provide transformational experiences for urban youth through outdoor education. This hike supports that mission. A number of CapTech volunteers will be participating in the event.
Blue Sky Fund exists to get inner-city kids out into the great outdoors. They mentor and educate at-risk youth through after-school and weekend programs as well as through "camperships" – a type of scholarship fund that allows many of their youth to attend summer camp.
Mary Reese, CapTech Events coordinator, says, "Our Richmond office as well as CapTech as a whole are proud to support Blue Sky Fund. The work they are doing is important and valuable to enriching these kids' lives."
