October is one of my favorite months with the Exceeding Expectations kids.  As you all know, our top priority for the kids is, and always will be, education. That said, every October we participate in two athletic events that I feel are significant in laying the groundwork necessary for them to be successful in the academic world and in their adult lives.  The first of these events is the Challenged Athletes Foundation (CAF) triathlon, aptly called “The Best Day in Triathlon.” Here’s a brief overview from their website:  “In 1994, three friends started a triathlon fundraiser to help one man regain his independence after a tragic accident left him a quadriplegic. From one came many, and Challenged Athletes Foundation (CAF) took root in the belief that sports and an active lifestyle are a pathway to more in life. Since that fundraiser 25 years ago, CAF has been committed to breaking the financial barrier that individuals with physical challenges face to participate in sports and live a healthy and active lifestyle.”  Participating alongside challenged athletes in a very tough race gives our kids an additional perspective on their own lives. The racers on the course with them face obstacles that they

Boingo 2009 Holiday Gift Guide


I’m good with holiday gift ideas — except that they come to me at inopportune times, like smack in the middle of summer. By the time December rolls around, I’ve completely forgotten all my ideas (yes, I’ve tried writing them down; I just can’t locate the list). So frankly, I’m not the best person to be writing a holiday gift guide. However, my Boingo colleagues, when I polled them, had no trouble contributing some fantastic ideas: Fueltank UNO charger, $39.95: “Charge just about any device without having to search around for an outlet.” Dave Hagan, CEO. Panasonic Pet Cam, $250: “Watch what your pets (or thieves) are doing to your house. It’s accessible best over a broadband connection like Wi-Fi so you can watch from a Boingo location anywhere in the world. And, and! You can move the camera around remotely—up, down and side to side.” Colby Goff, SVP Strategy. Lensbaby SLR Camera Lens, $100-$350: “Lensbaby camera lens are a great way to add a unique flavor (e.g., texture or color-wise) to photos. Great for both professional and amateur photographers.” Brian Shields, Interactive Designer & Architect. Funky, Chic and Cool Laptop Backpacks, $59-$145: “I’m a frequent traveler and have really
