Last Sunday, Plymouth Rock Assurance participated in a Walk to Cure Diabetes to help support JDRF as part of our ongoing community giving efforts. It was a fantastic 5k walk-a-thon and the turnout was great despite some chilly morning temperatures. Luckily for all the participants, the early morning ominous clouds decided not to rain on our parade. Our Plymouth Rock Assurance team showed up in full force with over 50 walkers to support JDRF. After morning registration all the participants double checked the laces on their walking shoes before the event kicked off at the Avon-by-the-Sea boardwalk.
The pace was brisk as the cool weather motivated walkers to stay warm. The many coffee drinkers had fueled up with their morning jolt of high octane caffeine. Teams from all over the state came out to walk and to support the cure. Many participants were happy to share their stories and discuss how diabetes has affected their lives and loved ones, including some of our own employees. With so many heartwarming stories all the teams were inspired to find the finish line and make the day’s Walk to Cure as successful as possible. There were even four legged walkers who showed up to wag their tails in support and help their owners set the pace.
Plymouth Rock Assurance is proud to be a corporate sponsor for this and other charitable events as we seek to support our home insurance and auto insurance customers in their local communities. To further support our employees’ own local community giving, the Plymouth Rock Foundation is matching employee donations dollar for dollar.
