Race Across the Window

without comments

MKTG friendly Jonathan Cane started Race Across the Window in 2008 after losing his mother to cancer. Three years later, the charity has changed, (this year’s event will raise money for Challenged Athletes Foundation), but the fundamentals remain the same – eight riders, 3000 miles, seven 24 hour days, and one Computrainer in the Window of Jackrabbit Sports on 14th Street (between 6th and 7th Ave.)

Check out www.raceacrossthewindow.com for more information, and catch MKTG’s own Scott Towle in the coveted 6am – 9am slot.
