Win4Youth: Ragnar Relay

This post is being written from Madison, Wisconsin, as Adecco E&T and GS have partnered to take on the Ragnar Relay.  Ragnar is an overnight relay race that tests a team to the fullest and our squad is attempting to run from Madison to Chicago (200 miles) in under 30 hours.

What is the best forum to bridge this gap and maximize the talents of both cultures?
