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.

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.

Last year, we announced the roll-out of Boingo Wi-Fi at Krispy Kreme stores throughout Southern California, and it was delightful to see our community get a sugar Wi-Fi high just hearing the news. But some of you were a bit bummed that our Krispy Kreme coverage wasn’t more widespread. So we promised we’d keep trying…and guess what?
