A friend of the Carter family, fitness has been a huge part of transforming my life for the better over the past couple of years. I am very excited to challenge myself to an endurance challenge like this and participate in something that supports such a great cause. I typically do resistance workouts in the gym 5-6 times per week using upper body, lower body, and occasionally full body splits. I also try to run outdoors twice per week and sometimes do HIIT workouts on the stationary bike. One workout tip I have is to try to train each muscle group twice per week, and be sure to always find new, creative ways to target your muscles so your routine stays exciting and is not found predictable by your body.

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.

  1. In Connecticut, more than 16,000 K-12 students in 250 schools annually have CIC classroom-based programs.

  2. Students compete in their schools and winners present their inventions at local and district events and at the state wide convention in May.

  3. 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.

  4. CIC inventors comprises 50% girls and 26% minority students, with program growth focused in under-served school districts.

  5. 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.
