Digital Insurance (www.digitalinsurance.com), the nation's largest and most technologically advanced employee benefits-only agency, generated a record-breaking $45,000 charitable contribution for Children's Healthcare of Atlanta (www.choa.org) from its fifth annual DI Dash road race on August 24. Since the event’s inception, the Atlanta-based company has raised $175,000 for the healthcare system.
“We know there's more to life than the mad dash associated with getting the job done. That's why Digital is dedicated to the communities where we operate,” says Adam Bruckman, president and CEO of Digital Insurance. “As individuals and collectively, our philanthropic and volunteer endeavors touch many lives.”
More than 500 people -- including many repeat DI Dash runners -- registered for the family friendly event, a certified, chip-timed Peachtree Road Race qualifier that began and ended in Marietta Square. In addition to the runners, which numbered more than the participants in the previous two years, there was tremendous volunteer and corporate support for the fundraiser.
Title sponsor UnitedHealthcare was joined by Platinum sponsors Aetna, Guardian, SunLife, CUNA and Lincoln Financial, as well as Diamond sponsors UNUM, TransAmerica and Morris, Manning & Martin. Gold sponsors included Berman, Fink & Van Horn, firstPRO, Humana, Standard, MetLife and Plansource. Contributing sponsors were Whole Foods, H&W Printing, Hire Dynamics and Atlanta Galleria.
“During 2007 Digital adopted Children's Healthcare of Atlanta as a charity of choice and the company expanded its commitment in 2009 by establishing the DI Dash 5K and 1K fun run,” explains Bruckman. “It's fast becoming a favorite tradition -- not only for the people who work at our firm -- but for other corporations, donors, participants and volunteers who contribute to the success of the event.”
Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta, a not-for-profit organization, is committed to enhancing the lives of children through excellence in patient care, research and education. Managing more than half a million patient visits annually at three hospitals and 20 neighborhood locations, Children’s is one of the largest clinical care providers for children in the country. Children’s offers access to more than 60 pediatric specialties and is ranked among the top children’s hospitals by U.S. News & World Report.
