Approximately 39% of the population will be diagnosed with cancer at some point during their lifetimes—and chances are you know someone who already has. TransPerfect is committed to knocking out cancer through supporting the V Foundation for Cancer Research and its initiatives to find a cure for cancer and create awareness through advocacy, education, fundraising, and philanthropy. Since 2015, we’ve raised over $400,000 for the V Foundation through various events and fundraisers.
TransPerfect’s headline philanthropy event for 2018 will be the Victory Lap 5K on August 18 in Manhattan’s Riverside Park. The event will feature a race through the scenic waterfront park on the Upper West Side, a silent auction, and a post-race celebration with food, beverages, and live music provided by The Counterfeiters! The Ultimate 80s, 90s, etc Party Band. All proceeds from the event will go directly to the V Foundation.

The race will take place in scenic Riverside Park. The park is quite large—the starting and finish lines, as well as the post-race reception, will be located near the Ellington in the Park café at 105th & Riverside Drive.

TransPerfect is committed to knocking out cancer through supporting the V Foundation and its initiatives. Each year, we host a fundraiser selling TransPerfect athletic shirts to employees. Total proceeds go directly to the V Foundation, and all employees who purchase a shirt are encouraged to be a part of the company video showing our support for the cause.
Since 2015, TransPerfect has raised over $400,000 for the V Foundation for Cancer Research. Over 1,500 employees from around the world have personally donated to the cause, including every person featured in this 2017 video.
