Arpin Charitable Fund, Inc., a/k/a Arpin Strong,  announced its Second Annual 5K Run & Walk for charity raised $5,615. Proceeds from the event benefitted the Global Institute For Transformation (GIFT), a Connecticut-based nonprofit. GIFT connects under-resourced populations with businesses that provide them with technology, smart farming, and renewable energy programs. The Village Link (TVL), based in California, works to provide equitable access to quality education and healthcare and build self-sustaining communities in rural Sierra Leone.

More than 100 running enthusiasts from the Americas, EMEA, and APAC regions competed in the race in person or virtually. In addition, Cardi’s Furniture and Mattresses donated $2,000 in gift card prizes to the winners in several categories. We congratulate and applaud all participants for their energy and passion for helping others.

At the close of the event, Arpin Strong’s Vice President, Karen Bannon, expressed gratitude to all those who helped make this year’s race a great success. “We rise by lifting others. We look to the future with great hope as we’ve witnessed firsthand the lives transformed when given a hand-up. It was an honor to contribute to helping GIFT and TVL further their beneficial work in Sierra Leone, Haiti, Malawi, and the Philippines.”

Of the funds raised, $3,744 was split equally between GIFT and TVL. The remaining funds will support other nonprofit organizations and continue Arpin Strong’s regular monthly donations to various charities.

Timothy Maurer and Colleen Rossignol, GIFT and TVL board members respectively, ran in the local event. Overjoyed with the results, they thanked everyone who participated. As a result, monies raised will have an immediate impact on helping those people who are hungry and struggling economically around the world.
