On April 13, 2018, Andrew Lee and Alexandra Davis represented The Extra Mile Foundation at the Mid-Hudson Regional Business Competition. Hosted at Marist College, this competition was a qualifier for top teams to advance to the New York State Business Plan Competition where the duo will spread the mission and vision to a larger audience and compete for cash prizes totaling up to $500,000.

At the Mid-Hudson Regional competition, the two competed with various innovative initiatives ranging from cheap, nutritious bento subscription boxes targeting college students to revolutionary eReaders for the visually impaired.

The Extra Mile Foundation will be using the 1st place prize of $1,000 towards marketing to increase their reach to donors to aggregate miles for veteran supporting organizations. Please give them a warm hand and share this post to spread the mission of The Extra Mile Foundation!
