Aristeo participated in United Way for Southeastern Michigan’s Run United Fall Virtual Marathon to support in-person learning for returning students and to help close the Digital Divide. This divide is the gap between those who have access to technology, means and methods for receiving the best education possible and those who don’t have those same opportunities. The funds raised will specifically help provide necessary technology for students in need.
This year’s marathon raised nearly $200,000 to improve Southeastern Michigan students’ school year.
Team Aristeo reached the marathon goal of 26.2 miles per person over the course of a month. The 35-person Aristeo team, walked, ran and biked together with weekly, socially distanced walking clubs to cross the virtual finish line with a combined 917 miles.
