Proceeds from 9TH Annual Race Set to Benefit CODEcamp

Charleston, South Carolina – December 18, 2014 – The Charleston Digital Corridor, along with title sponsors Benefitfocus and Google, is pleased to announce the 2015 Innovators' 5k Race (iFive:K) will be held on April 30th, 2015. Proceeds from the annual race benefit CODEcamp scholarships and other STEM related education programming.

Confirmed sponsors include Charleston's fast growing tech companies, BoomTown, Blue Acorn, SPARC and Blackbaud. "It is awesome to see our tech community come together for a fun evening of competition and networking while supporting the further development of talent in Charleston," said Digital Corridor Director, Ernest Andrade.

The Digital Corridor's iFive:K has quickly become a favorite athletic and networking event for Charleston's tech economy. As Charleston's only evening weekday race to be held in Downtown Charleston, the iFive:K has sold out in record time over the past two years. Registration for the 2015 iFive:K opens January 1, 2015.

"We're excited to co-sponsor the 2015 iFiveK. It's a terrific opportunity to support STEM education and network with the local tech community. We're delighted to join the fun and help Charleston Digital Corridor not only raise awareness of the growing local tech economy, but also attract top talent," said Benefitfocus Chief Commercial Officer, Andy Howell.

Additional sponsors include Carepoint, Immedion, Net Galaxy Studios, eGroup and Integral Solution Group, Peoplematter and the City of Charleston.
