Aperio Gives Back
We know how fortunate we are to be able to wake up and do what we love each day. Helping bring new treatments to patients is a noble cause, but it is just one of many ways in which we can make a difference. That’s why in addition to company-sponsored charities, we encourage our employees to go out into their local communities and support the charities that mean the most to them. For some, maybe it’s making sure a child has a gift to unwrap at Christmas or that a family has a turkey for Thanksgiving. Or maybe it’s raising funds for cancer research or giving back to our veterans. As a company and as individuals, we believe in being grateful and giving back each day.
The Leukemia and Lymphoma Society’s Annual Light the Night Walk
Aperio participated in the Triangle’s virtual Light the Night walk Thursday, October 21st, in support of the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society’s fight to cure cancer.
As a sign of solidarity, several of our employees walked together at the American Tobacco Campus in Durham, NC, where Aperio is headquartered. Aperio exceeded our fundraising goal, raising a total of $3,665 for leukemia and lymphoma research.
Freedom Reigns Ranch Middle Tennessee
At Aperio, we love animals, and we also desire to make a difference in the lives of underprivileged children. Recently, we found a way to combine these two passions – by pooling our resources – and making a gift of $1,635 to to Freedom Reigns Ranch located in Middle Tenneessee. With the help of horses, Freedom Reigns provides mentor sessions, free-of-charge, to children and young adults who have been through trauma and other life challenges.

Marine Toys for Tots
Aperio gave back this past holiday season by becoming a drop-off site for the Marine Toys for Tots Campaign. As an official sponsor, Aperio became a designated drop-off center for toy donations in our community. Well over 50 toys were collected in total. Monetary donations were accepted as well, with over 97% of donations going directly to Toys for Tots’ mission to bring the joy of Christmas to less fortunate children.
