Aspen’s Recent Philanthropy
Miles for Myeloma, Philadelphia
As past of Aspen’s ongoing philanthropic effort, we recently participated in the Miles for Myeloma 5k run/walk in Philadelphia. The weather was beautiful, the crowd was ready and even the Phillie Phanatic got out of bed early to help kick off the day!
Over 1200 people showed up to help support the Philadelphia Multiple Myeloma Networking Group. Thus far, the event has raised over $100,000. Thanks to everyone who participated or supported Team Aspen.
Check out some pictures from the event below.
Girls Scouts of Northern New Jersey, 1st ever RAK
Through a generous donation by Aspen, the Girl Scouts of Northern New Jersey(GSNNJ) were able to hold their very first RAK day. RAK stands for Random Acts of Kindness. The Girl Scouts took boxes of Girl Scout cookies, donated by Aspen, to a local elementary school to thank the staff for their hard work. Not only was the staff thankful, they were very surprised! For this 1st RAK day they went to Ironia Elementary School. They have plans to hand out the rest of the cookies in the coming weeks.
One of the participating troop leaders, Terri Humphries, said “Please be sure to tell Andrew how much we enjoyed the first leg of these donations and how surprised and pleased the teachers and staff were!”
