San Francisco Startups Do Pushups for Charity Next Thursday
Doing pushups started as just a way for the Udemy team to stay in shape at the office. Before they knew it, the team had the crazy idea to one day turn that exercise into a way to raise money for charity. And that crazy fundraiser is about to happen.
This Thursday, San Francisco startups 99Designs, GitHub, Hotel Tonight, Udemy and Zaarly will put their hands to the ground, literally, in a pushup competition to benefit five different charities. Join us at the event May 17th, 6pm at Minna Gallery, to cheer them on! All ticket proceeds will go to the selected charities.
Five Amazing Nonprofit Organizations
Each startup chose one charity to support, which makes for an impressive lineup of philanthropic initiatives. You can support by sponsoring a team or buying a ticket to the event.
