At Crux Collaborative our job is to help our clients solve complicated user experience problems. As a team, we collaborate together and with our clients because in the end we will create a more effective solution if we have more brainpower and expertise working together to realize our shared goal.
We also collaborate with one another in supporting the events and causes that are dear to us as individuals. One example of this type of collaboration is our ongoing partnership with the Children’s Cancer Research Fund (CCRF).
Over the years, our involvement with CCRF has spanned from User Experience Consulting to Board Membership to active support and fundraising. Crux Collaborative has been an active participant in the Tim To Fly event for the last four years, and I was elected in 2013 to the Children’s Cancer Research Fund’s board of directors.
On June 21st 2014, we will come together in this same spirit of collaboration to support Children’s Cancer Research Fund’s annual Time to Fly with our friends and families as Joggers for Julian. This event is a great example of many people joining together to support one shared goal. In this case it is to eradicate childhood cancer.

This will be the 4th year in a row that our team has supported Children’s Cancer Research Fund (CCRF) and we do this in honor of my son Julian who died in February of 2011 from complications of Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia (ALL) just 9 days before his 4th birthday. (You can read more about his story at JulianGolden.com).
The Time to Fly offers an event for everyone. There are 10k and 5k runs as well as a 5k walk and kids’ fun run. It is a great event for the whole family and a great way for our family, friends, and colleagues to collaborate with us to help achieve our fundraising goal of $20,000 to support the groundbreaking research CCRF supports. Last year Joggers for Julian raised over $12,000.
You can collaborate with us in 2 ways.
You can find all the information you need on the Joggers for Julian web site. Each participant will receive a stylish Joggers for Julian running shirt designed by Adam Turman. This will be the third year we have commissioned Adam to create the artwork.
I hope you will collaborate with us for a great cause and spend the morning with our team. Registration for the 5k walk is free until June 15.
