CHICAGO, April 28, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Combined Insurance, a leading provider of individual supplemental accident, disability, health, and life insurance products, and a Chubb company, sponsored the American Cancer Society's Walk & Roll Chicago event at Soldier Field on Saturday, Apr. 22. This is the second consecutive year the company participated in the event that raises awareness for all cancer.
This event was the latest example of how Combined Insurance and its employees are making a difference by supporting the American Cancer Society. More than 30 employees have volunteered their time at Walk and Roll in the last two years. Additionally, employees gathered this week to learn more about how they can further impact the organization.
The company continues to follow one of its corporate values of being socially responsible by giving back to the community—a legacy which was started by the company's founder, W. Clement Stone.
"We are proud to be a sponsor again this year for Walk & Roll Chicago event for the American Cancer Society," said Melanie Lundberg, Assistant Vice President, Talent Management & Corporate Communications at Combined Insurance. "Our employees continue to support the American Cancer Society and their fight to find a cure against cancer. And in return, we are committed to continue giving back to this cause."
More than 4,000 walkers, runners, skaters, cyclists, and volunteers came together to honor cancer survivors, raise awareness about reducing cancer risk, and raise money to support lifesaving research and the programs and services of the American Cancer Society. This year, the Walk & Roll celebrates its 46th anniversary.
"Year after year, this event shows the great strengths of our community who come together to walk, run, skate and bike for a common cause," said Samantha Kuderna, Community Manager, Special Events, at the American Cancer Society. "We are grateful for all of our sponsors, including Combined Insurance, for helping us raise critical funds to find cures to fight cancer and save more lives."
Combined Insurance, which offers Cancer Care Protector1 supplemental insurance to consumers, has a tradition of success in the insurance industry dating back more than 90 years. Stone believed in making the world a better place—the company honors his commitment of giving back with volunteer efforts and donations to charitable organizations throughout the year with special focus on veteran and health-focused charities.
