Arpin Charitable Fund, Inc., also known as Arpin Strong, participated in its Third Annual Global 5K Run & Walk event for charity. This year, Cancer Research U.K. (CRUK), the world’s leading charitable funder of cancer research, received the directed proceeds.

The in-person 5K event took place in Maidstone, Kent, UK, on July 2, 2023; however, once again, Arpin Strong opened the doors for global participation by collecting funds and allowing persons to participate virtually between July 1 – 4.

“We enthusiastically applaud all of our global heroes who joined together to truly make a significant impact in furthering Arpin Strong’s mission,” said Karen Bannon, vice president of the charitable foundation. She continued, “The success behind Arpin Strong is the people willing to give their time and efforts towards a common cause. We are proud to have distributed over $1.182M in conjunction with the Arpin Charitable Trust since our humble beginnings in 2013.”

The big-hearted U.K. crew, walking in person to honor every person affected by cancer, not only contributed significantly to the invaluable work of Cancer Research U.K. but also continued an annual tradition that carries a powerful message of solidarity, kindness, and hope. The team demonstrated their determination, compassion, and spirit throughout the event, showcasing their commitment at every step. We wholeheartedly commend our UK-based Arpin heroes – Keith Whelan, Lisa Byrne, Barbora Czanner, Rebecca Bibby, Danielle Franklin, Alex Barry, Alistair Steward, Christie Roberts, and Danny Secrett – for making this remarkable achievement possible. Your tireless dedication is genuinely making a significant impact in the ongoing fight against cancer.

At the conclusion of the event, Keith Whelan, general manager of Arpin International Group U.K. and Ireland, Arpin Strong board member, and organizer of the local U.K. team, expressed his gratitude to all the individuals who contributed globally to the race’s triumph. He emphasized the organization’s goal to support numerous causes and take on new challenges as Arpin Strong continues to expand its outreach efforts in the global communities where our employees live and work.
