On Saturday, May 2nd, 2015, the Tampa office participated in the Arthritis Foundation’s Walk to Cure Arthritis. The annual event takes place in cities throughout the United States for the purpose of raising funds for fighting the nation’s leading cause of disability. The Walk to Cure Arthritis is held during the month of May because it is also National Arthritis Awareness Month.
The event offers a three-mile and a one-mile course for the walkers and features arthritis information and activities for those in attendance. This walk is pet-friendly and some of our Sagicor participants brought their dogs (wearing Sagicor Fandanas). Sagicor Life Insurance Company has been participating in the Walk to Cure Arthritis for six years and the event has become an annual tradition for the company. This year there were 19 staff members who participated in the walk and Sagicor raised a total of $2,353 for the cause. Overall, the Tampa Chapter of the Arithritis Foundation raised $70,249 to help people gain access to critical medications and support research towards curing arthritis.
