IRVINE, CA -- (Marketwired) -- 07/22/14 -- On July 27, 2014, over 5,000 runners will lace up their shoes to take on the scenic, yet notoriously challenging, course that is the San Francisco Half Marathon. Some will run for fitness, others for a cause, but all with the hope of making it to the finish line.
As part of their Enterey Gives Back initiative, Enterey's Team Lemon, made up of 8 spirited and driven Enterey employees from both Northern and Southern California, will participate in the race on behalf of the Alex's Lemonade Stand Foundation (ALSF). This non-profit foundation was created in 2000 by Liz and Jay Scott, the parents of Alexandra Scott (1996-2000), a 4-year-old battling neuroblastoma. Alex wanted one thing: to help other kids like her. In just one day, she made an astonishing $2,000 selling homemade lemonade. Since then, the foundation has raised over $80 million for cancer research in her honor.
Mike Ferletic, Enterey CEO and Team Lemon participant, says that working in the life sciences, it is important to always keep in mind the people who are impacted by the work. "As a life sciences consulting firm, we aim to help our clients in their efforts to produce safe and effective treatments for patients. Our jobs are tied to helping patients like Alex, and participating in an event like this allows us to get more personally involved while creating awareness for a great organization like ALSF." He explains that his goal is to create an opportunity for Enterey and its employees to give back to organizations focused on improving the lives of others.
This spirit of giving back to the community and making a positive impact will power Enterey's Team Lemon to cross the finish line. Though the hills of San Francisco will present a formidable challenge, Team Lemon will stay strong, knowing that they are running to help find a cure for childhood cancer.

It's easy to assume that your app will run on a fast and reliable network. The reality for your app's users, though, is often a slow, unreliable network with spotty coverage. What happens when the network doesn't work, or when the device is in airplane mode? You get unhappy, frustrated users. An offline-first app is an app that works, without error, when there is no network connection.
