In less than a month, many of us will gather in San Antonio for RIMS 2018. While a lot of business activity happens during the conference, a lot of good happens in support of our industry, as well. One of the best examples is the Spencer/Sedgwick 5K Fun Run. It’s hard to believe that we are approaching the fourth annual run this year! Sedgwick is very proud to see the Fun Run continue to take great strides forward. (See what I did there? Strides = running… Well, I digress.) The important thing is we continue raising money together to promote the growth and future of our industry.
If you are not familiar with the Spencer Educational Foundation, since its founding, the organization has awarded 970 scholarships totaling approximately $6.3 million to deserving students who are pursuing a career in the risk and insurance industry. They do much more than just provide these scholarships, so I encourage you to visit their website and learn more at www.spencered.org.
This year, the Fun Run has more sponsors than ever before and we also hope to set a record for more runners than ever before in 2018. Thank you to all our sponsors! We could not do this without each of you; this again shows we are better when we all come together for the greater good of our industry.
I could write more, but why do that when my friend Andrew Miller, Director of Development at Spencer, and I thought a short video would really give you what you need to know to register, participate, or donate to support this great cause.
So, on your mark: Spend 48 seconds and watch the video. Get set: Register or donate here. Go: We will see you on Tuesday, April 17th at 6:30 a.m. in San Antonio.
One last thing: You don’t have to run! You can walk or support another runner with a great donation.
See you at the start line.
Jonathan Mast, Social Media Director, Sedgwick
