Design Marathon on Kickstarter

CCDC just launched a project on Kickstarter in support of the 3rd Annual Design Marathon.  We’re trying to raise $3,000 by August 31st to make sure that the designers and non-profits who participate have everything they need to have a successful marathon experience on October 1st. If you have attended or participated in the Design Marathon or just think it’s a great idea, consider supporting it by visiting our Kickstarter project page.
