We all get involved in events, activities and causes that change lives, including our own. For Max and me, a prime example is The Wall Street Decathlon. Each summer we run, jump, throw, lift and more, all for charity. This year the event is going national, including a Boston edition. Here’s why we love it.
The Decathlon is an extremely demanding and exceptionally fun athletic competition for financial industry professionals. With speed, strength and agility events, it’s a cross between the Olympics and the NFL combine. This will be Max’s fifth year. Four for me. We train all year long for this, while raising funds for pediatric cancer.
For 2016, the event expands from its NYC roots to include events in Chicago, San Francisco, Houston, and right here in Boston at the Brandeis University stadium. All money raised here stays local, benefiting Dana-Farber Cancer Institute, one of the world’s leading cancer centers. 100% of proceeds go to Dana-Farber!
We’re proud to be on the Competitor Board for the Boston decathlon, helping to promote and maximize the impact of the event. Our involvement has included incredible local training from experts at MBSC and TB12…better known as Mike Boyle and Tom Brady.
Teams like ours compete on July 23, and individuals on July 24. The day’s agenda: 400M run, Football throw, Pull ups, 40 yard dash, Dips, 500M row, Vertical jump, Agility drill, Bench press, 800M run.
