Flight1 and Nine13sports are dedicated to making a difference in the lives of Indianapolis youth and have found that collaboration is key to building funds and awareness for their organizations. The alliance is fostered by hosting the event at the Speak Easy, Indianapolis’s first collaborative work space that has been an incubator for the Indianapolis entrepreneurship environment. INDYCAR driver Charlie Kimball and TV personality Larra Overton, both long-time supporters of the organizations, will lend their time and support for the good being done by the organizations.
