ATLANTA – September 6, 2011 – Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta is excited to announce that the third annual 5K DI Dash road race on August 27 -- organized by Atlanta-based Digital Insurance -- generated a $35,000 charitable donation to Children’s and drew some 700 registered participants. The family friendly event, which started in Marietta Square, is a certified, chip-timed Peachtree Road Race qualifier. This year the DI Dash also included a 1K fun run for the first time.
“Digital has adopted Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta as our charity of choice, and this year’s contribution tops our previous record of $30,000,” says Adam Bruckman, president and CEO of Digital Insurance, the nation’s fastest-growing employee benefits agency. “We continue to grow our tradition of giving back. Through donations of time and money, our employees have embraced this not-for-profit organization and the positive impact it has on the lives of children through patient care, research and education.”
The DI Dash has become a favorite end-of-the-summer activity – not only for the people who work with Digital – but for other corporations, donors, participants and volunteers who contributed to the success of the 2011 event. Participating industry leaders included:
- Title Sponsor: United Healthcare
- Platinum Sponsors: Aetna and American General
- Diamond Sponsors: CIGNA, Guardian, Lincoln Financial, MetLife and TW Telecom
- Gold Sponsors: Berman, Fink & Van Horn; Fort Dearborn; Samsung Mobile; and UNUM
“We know there’s more to life than the mad dash associated with getting the job done,” explains Bruckman. “That’s why Digital Insurance is dedicated to the communities where we operate. As individuals and collectively, our philanthropic and volunteer endeavors touch many lives.”
