Citrix’s award will enable A Kids’ Brain Tumor Cure to undergo a rapid technological transition fully integrating all technology systems and outreach vehicles for the organization world wide, thereby enabling the organization to reach a broader global audience (Brain tumors do NOT know gender, ethnic, socio-economic or GEOGRAPHIC boundaries). The project, The Global BRAINSTORM Marathon will kick-off at Citrix Headquarters at 9am EST (date to be determined) and will “follow the sun,” as the project weaves its way across the globe. The Marathon will be managed by a small US East Coast project team, coordinating with employees around the world who will donate their services during their regularly scheduled business hours. In this way, the Marathon will unite Citrix’s international employee base as they work towards a common goal. To date, Citrix employees from 3 different countries and 6 states have volunteered to participate in this ground-breaking project.
