Kicking off in March, the Super Mega Ultimate Techathlon is a fun-filled fundraising campaign involving eight simple but ‘ridiculous challenges’ from retro video gaming, to a stock photo contest, and rock paper scissors tournament. While there are prizes and bragging rights on the line, the ultimate goal is to raise funds for disadvantaged youth skill building in our community. All of the proceeds from the Techathlon go to <CODE>anagan, a non-profit program that helps local youth build their tech skills. Read the release:
