"... I believe the tech industry has a responsibility to help ensure that Portland’s more vulnerable residents aren’t missing out on opportunities—especially students," said Eric Breon, founder and CEO of Vacasa. "That’s why my team and I are so excited to get involved with 4K 4Charity Fun Run PDX 2016 and support Rosemary Anderson High School.
"Young people who have not found success in traditional schools—either by dropping out, being expelled, or struggling with homelessness—can get a second chance at RAHS.
"And the school’s alternative approach, tailored to reach these students, really works. Over 90% of their enrolled students graduate, compared to 19% of the national average of dropouts who try to go back to school.
"I love the idea of helping give these students a second chance...
Won’t you join us?"
