Community Outreach Committee

We are extremely excited to be celebrating International Data Center Day with the rest of the mission critical field. The DC Chapter of 7×24 has been a vital partner in helping NOVA students reach their educational and professional goals.

We appreciate your support and collaborative effort to increase awareness of what data centers are, why they are so important to our connected world and the wide array of career opportunities that are a part of your industry.

Thank you for your dedication to the NOVA Foundation and to NOVA students. Today and every day, we celebrate your ongoing commitment in helping NOVA students persist in their pathway to success.

Recent Events:

On Saturday, August 28, 2021, the 7×24 Exchange DC Chapter participated in the Adult Field Day Fundraiser benefiting the Boulder Crest Foundation! Boulder Crest Foundation is a charitable organization that uses the proven science of Posttraumatic Growth to heal, train, and advocate for combat veterans, first responders, and their families who have experienced trauma. They develop, deliver, and scale transformative programs to ensure these remarkable men and women transform struggle into strength and lifelong growth, so they can live the great lives they deserve.  Their main campus is located in Bluemont Virginia, just outside of Washington DC, and a second campus located in Arizona. 

 Our team, “Running for the Cloud” had a fabulous time playing Crab Soccer, Sack Race, Tug of War, Jenga, Balloon Toss, Connect 4, Egg on Spoon Race, and the Sponge Relay.   There were a total of 5 teams represented, 2 teams of local teachers, 1 team of fitness friends, 1 team of close friends (oh could they dance up a storm with the DJ music!) and our mission critical team.  We are excited to share that Running for the Cloud came in 1st Place!   We are thankful for the support of our local Chapter, it’s members and those who participated!      

 This was the first adult field games fundraising event hosted by Henway Hard Cider.  Their staff and the volunteers from Boulder Crest informed us that this will be an annual event and they are already discussing how they can make it better and bigger!   Trisann, Outreach Committee Chair, is looking to have at least 3 mission critical teams for the next one! 

Please take a moment and watch the following video for more insight on this amazing organization.  It is so worth your time and we hope that, in some way, it touches your heart to also give back to those who most certainly deserve our assistance.  Boulder Crest Video
