Arpin International Group is pleased to announce that its recent Virtual 5K Run raised $1,090 to benefit Sarah’s Circle, a Chicago-based nonprofit organization serving women who are homeless or in need of a safe space. Located in Chicago’s Uptown community, Sarah’s Circle has supported thousands of women since 1979.
Held 19-22 October to coincide with the Worldwide ERC® Global Workforce Symposium in Chicago, IL, this was the first time global mobility professionals gathered at a large-scale in-person industry event in almost two years. Even so, many of our colleagues were unable to attend due to covid travel restrictions; however, that did not stop them from participating virtually. Running enthusiasts throughout the world joined in the event locally and posted their time on social media. We congratulate and applaud all participants for their energy and passion for helping others.
At the close of the event, Arpin International Group’s VP of Business Development, Michael Hughes, and Director of Global Business Development, Curt Smigel, visited with Stephanie Nilson of Sarah’s Circle to deliver the donation personally. “It was an honor to contribute to the local community in Chicago and be a helping hand to Sarah’s Circle. They are doing phenomenal work building back the lives of so many homeless women.”
Accepting the donation, Stephanie was overwhelmed with the end results and thankful to all those who participated in the global event as the monies will have an immediate impact to ensure women are housed in Chicago’s Uptown community.
