"88rising started in New York City, from a parking garage in the Bronx where the first employees came together where we sat in a room in a shared space in Brooklyn to lay the foundation of what 88rising is. It was the most magical time of my life â the whole experience of building and things starting to happen is the best part of all this. All of this happened in New York City, winter, spring, summer fall â through the seasons it's where 88rising took shape and I'm beyond proud and to me, it's only fitting that this was all born there. It's especially meaningful to be able to do it at an iconic venue like Forest Hills Stadium during its 100th anniversary!," CEO and founder Sean Miyashiro told the publication.
