Thanks to some philanthropic generosity, loyal readers, a few free tickets are available for a talk next week by Born to Run author Christopher McDougall. The event is a benefit for Buildon, a non-profit that empowers primarily urban U.S. high school students through in-class and intensive after-school programs.
Enjoy cocktails and hors d'oeuvres as Chris signs books and answers questions about his experiences researching and writing Born to Run and what he has learned about inspiration and finding happiness.
buildOn Founder & CEO Jim Ziolkowski will be on hand to share the story of how buildOn is changing lives locally and globally, followed by a touching testimony from a student member of buildOn's after-school program.
