On a business trip to China in May 2008, Adam Roseman, CEO of ARC China, Inc. was visiting the city of Chengdu in the Sichuan Province. While there the region experienced a massive earthquake that killed over 69,000 people and injured more than 374,000. Witnessing firsthand the devastating aftermath and effects on the largely rural population, Roseman vowed to give back to the community and help re-build the area that has become such an integral part of his appreciation for the Chinese people and culture.
Upon returning to the U.S., Roseman quickly organized a large group of professional athletes, political leaders, entrepreneurs, and influential members of the Chinese community to take part in a fundraiser.
