In addition to his writing and speaking, Len Forkas is the founder and President of Milestone Communications, a Reston, Virginia-based owner and developer of wireless towers in the Mid-Atlantic. Since Len completed Race Across America, Milestone has grown four-fold in size demonstrating one of Len's key points-that philanthropy increases productivity.
In 2014 Len published his book What Spins the Wheel: Life and Leadership Lessons from the Race for Hope. Profits from the sale of the book are donated to support Hopecam's work connecting children with cancer with their friends at school.
Len has appeared on CNN Anderson Cooper 360, Fox 5 WTTG, Fox & Friends, and WJLA ABC7.
Len also serves as Chairman of the Board of Hopecam, the charity he founded in 2003 to use technology to overcome the social isolation of children in treatment for cancer.
In the two years since Race Across America, Len's vision for Hopecam has been fulfilled-a mission-driven team has grown the organization from partnering with 6 hospitals in the Washington, D.C. metropolitan area to 50 hospitals located in 37 different states and now helps 14 times the number of children as before.
