Forsyth BYOT iChallenge

In 2013, we found that hundreds of students in Forsyth County did not have the technology necessary to succeed in the highly technical environment that school is today. The county relies on online work a great deal and so many students were having to go to the library or a Starbucks to access assignments because they did not have internet in their homes.  Additionally, many did not and do not have internet capable devices that make this work possible either.

So, we made it our mission to bridge this gap and help these students try to break the cycle of generational poverty that so many of them are born to.

In the last seven years, we have raised and donated just over $350,000 to the Forsyth County Schools for this purpose. Our purpose is to raise awareness of the problem and find sponsors to donate or raise money outright through our two yearly fundraisers, the BYOT Golf Tournament in May and the iRUN for BYOT 5K & Fun Run in October.  The money we raise goes entirely to the Forsyth County School System. They have staff in place to first determine which students are in need and then to purchase and distribute internet hotspots or devices to that family. Join us in support of Forsyth County's students!
