Infinidat helps tech tackle cancer
Enterprise storage solutions leader, Infinidat (www.infinidat.com) is joining with other major IT and storage vendors as part of the tech community’s massive fundraising effort to advance cancer research and help pediatric cancer patients and their families. The ‘Tech Tackles Cancer’ for the “Battle of the Tech Rockstars” charity competition will be held in London (https://techtacklesx.org/ttc-london) on 24 May 2023 at the O’Meara Nightclub, and in Boston on 21 September 2023 at The Sinclair (Cambridge) (https://techtacklesx.org/ttc-boston).
“Infinidat’s support for Tech Tackles Cancer demonstrates our company’s strong commitment to making the world a better place, not only as an enterprise storage solutions provider, but also as a good corporate citizen. We’re proud to give back,” says Sapna Capoor, Director of Global Communications, Infinidat. “Not only is Infinidat actively involved as a Gold Sponsor of both Tech Tackles Cancer London and Tech Tackles Cancer Boston, by coming together with other companies in the storage tech community, we’re able to magnify and extend the positive difference we’re making in the lives of children in need.”
“Infinidat also has a seat on the volunteer-led team that oversees and plans the organization’s activities,” continues Capoor, who also serves on the executive committee of Tech Tackles Cancer.
“The funds that are raised through Tech Tackles Cancer London will go directly to Children with Cancer UK, one of the leading childhood cancer charities in the United Kingdom,” continues Capoor. “The funds that are raised through Tech Tackles Cancer Boston will go directly to two organizations: St. Baldrick’s Foundation, a volunteer-powered charity committed to funding the most promising research to find cures for childhood cancers and give survivors long, healthy lives, and One Mission, a pediatric cancer charity that does whatever it takes to get kids through cancer treatment.”
Now in its ninth year, Tech Tackles Cancer has raised approximately $3 million to date for organizations that support pediatric cancer research and outreach programmes. Building on its success in the USA, Tech Tackles Cancer is launching its charity fundraiser in London for the first time ever.
“Tech Tackles Cancer’s mission is to harness the power of the technology industry to raise awareness and funds to help sick children and their families as well as advance cancer research,” adds, Christopher Lynch, CEO, AtScale. “Furthermore, we are teaching the next generation of technology leaders how to prioritize philanthropy alongside their careers. I invite people to support the performers and the companies that are participating in Tech Tackles Cancer.”
Tech executives will put on their “rock star” acts as musical performers on stage in London and Boston, respectively, backed by a live band, to compete in the head-to-head “Battle of the Tech Rock Stars” competition. The live audience and spectators watching the performances via LinkedIn Live will be able to vote for their favourite performances.
