Tarrytown, NY (PRWEB) February 14, 2008
Datacap, the leading provider of flexible document capture and forms processing software solutions, today announced plans to kick off its fourth annual Cycle Faster program on March 3 with a fundraising goal of $100,000 for the Lance Armstrong Foundation (LAF).
In 2008, Cycle Faster will support both LAF and the Horace Mann School for the Deaf and Hard of Hearing with funds raised from Cycle Faster sponsors, including Fujitsu, Content Analyst, Canon, Kodak, Panasonic, Bowe Bell + Howell, Captaris, EMC Captiva, Snowbound, AIIM, DocuWare, Parascript, Visioneer, Vignette, and ABBYY. Sponsored riders will compete in the Datacap booth at AIIM (2539) for the right to have donations made in their company's name.
A new component to Cycle Faster has been introduced for 2008: a widespread pledge campaign asking members of the Scanning and ECM community to "Give a little to make a big difference."
In its first three years, Cycle Faster raised $48,000 for LAF, Boston's Horace Mann School for the Deaf and Hard of Hearing, and the Tyler Hamilton Foundation.
"Our industry has proven that it has heart," said Scott Blau, Datacap CEO. "This year, we want to significantly increase our commitment to the Lance Armstrong Foundation. LAF does an excellent job supporting local programs all over the country that really make a difference in people's lives - for both cancer survivors and their families. We believe that the ECM industry can easily hit the $100,000 goal - all in small, individual donations."
March 3 Benefit Reception to Mix Laughter and Good Causes
Cycle Faster 2008 will kick off on March 3, 2008 at AIIM with a special Benefit Reception at Boston's Omni Parker House Hotel (60 School Street), 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. Sponsors, beneficiaries, journalists and others interested in Cycle Faster are invited.
During the reception, Datacap will recognize 2007 Cycle Faster Time Trial winners; representatives of LAF and the Horace Mann School will discuss their programs; and rising film and television star Victor Varnado (as seen on HBO, Comedy Central, and Late Night With Conan O'Brien) will finish the evening with a comedy set.
Complimentary press passes for the reception are available. Tickets can be purchased for a $50 donation to Cycle Faster. For reservations, e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org.
