This is a terrific cause and fitness challenge. Two hours of push ups--crazy. How many can I do? No idea, but if I can lift one of the great pyramids with one hand, the sky's the limit. I appreciate your support and encouragement for this excellent program. This is my third year of "Pushing" My goal this year is to top the 1422 pushups I did last year. Please support this terrific cause with donation and further inspire this 70 year old to kick butt. Thank you, Bruce

The Connecticut Invention Convention (CIC), a 36-year-old, 501c3 nonprofit organization, is the nation’s largest continuously operating program for K-12 student inventors and entrepreneurs.
100% of the proceeds raised by Push For Entrepreneurship are donated to CIC.
CIC’s mission is to teach students creative problem-solving techniques through inventing, innovating, and entrepreneurship, by teachers trained in CIC’s programs. CIC programs have been endorsed by CT’s educational leaders as promoting creativity and critical thinking, and have received prestigious recognition, including trips to the White House Science Fairs.
In Connecticut, more than 17,000 K-12 students in nearly 300 schools annually have CIC classroom-based programs.
Students compete in their schools and winners present their inventions at local and district events and at the state wide convention in May.
Selected state winners advance to the National Invention Convention and Entrepreneurship Expo (NICEE) at the Henry Ford Museum of American Innovation in Dearborn, Michigan, in June.
CIC inventors comprises 50% girls and 26% minority students, with program growth focused in under-served school districts.
CIC inventors pursue entrepreneurship through patenting, investment, and commercialization.
Your donation will be used to provide hundreds of Bridgeport, Norwalk, and New Haven K-12 students the opportunity to participate in a program that will change their lives and our futures.
