This three-part series is a special feature on two industry leaders doing good inside the board room and outside on the pavement. Dr. Tianyi (TJ) Jiang and Microsoft’s Jeff Teper will be two of the competitors at the Boston Marathon 2020, running on Team Red Cross. AvePoint will match donations through the end of December. Donate to Team Red Cross and check out how else you can help at www.redcrossblood.org.
This week, we sit down with AvePoint’s CEO, Dr. Tianyi (TJ) Jiang, in his campaign to complete the final of 6 major marathons. Let’s take a look at the road TJ took to make it to the oldest continuously running marathon!
The Quest for the Abbott 6 Star
What started as a healthy habit during long weeks on the road became a competitive passion project that required a commitment to training, no matter where in the world he travels. Now just one city away from being an Abbott 6 Star Finisher, TJ is kicking into high gear on the training front!
Why write a blog series about this? Why commit TJ to do some strange things for the sake of supporting Team Red Cross? Simple.
The American Red Cross mission to prevent and alleviate human suffering in the face of emergencies is directly in line with the AvePoint Philanthropy Community pillar, lifting and supporting communities in hard and unimaginable circumstances.
