CHI kicked off 2020 with the first of our 40 Acts of Kindness Around the World!
On January 2nd, CHI sponsored a race in Tashkent, Uzbekistan called Charity Run “New Year Elves”. CHI was well represented, with 2020 Work & Travel participants, Internship and Work & Travel alumni, and our supportive local partner organization, Global Friends Tashkent, all taking part.
The atmosphere was absolutely phenomenal, and all proceeds from the race were donated to support rural Uzbek orphans coping with mental health issues.
It was an honor for CHI to be involved in such a great event, and everyone there took home some wonderful memories. Uzbekistan is a beautiful country, and CHI has been helping Uzbek students come to the US to study and train for many years. Supporting this run was a great way to encourage young people to be active and live a healthy lifestyle, and it was a terrific success.
Stay tuned for our 2nd Act of Kindness, coming soon, and keep up with our 40 Acts of Kindness initiative throughout the year!
