Curious to learn about what keeps the Rally.org team busy? Here’s an update…
Rally joins dozens of other companies on AngelList’s top 100 startups to watch in 2013. ReadWrite posted the list yesterday, which features some of the most intriguing innovators in 10 categories, including education, healthcare, and publishing.
The San Francisco Chronicle profiled Jim Tracy, the subject of a new documentary and the focus of a related Rally fundraiser. Tracy has spent decades training teens to race, despite being sometimes homeless and destitute, becoming the winningest high-school cross-country coach in California history. The film Running for Jim follows Tracy and the girls’ team at San Francisco University High School during an extraordinary season and shocking state-championship race. The lifelong competitive runner now lives with amyotrophic lateral sclerosis—also known as ALS or Lou Gehrig’s disease. To support the film and Rally for ALS awareness, check out the fundraising page here.
Ray Harts, a graduate of The Last Mile (TLM) tech incubator at San Quentin State Prison, recently talked about his experiences with TLM and interning at Rally.org on Press:Here, a technology roundtable on NBC affiliates around San Francisco and Silicon Valley. He was also interviewed for a story about TLM in the Valley’s Mercury News.
