On April 13, Gallagher Bassett joined thousands of teachers, students, parents and community supporters for the Miami-Dade County Public Schools 4th Annual Superintendent’s 5K Challenge held in downtown Miami’s Museum Park. Gallagher Bassett was the sponsor of the “Your Pace or Mine” Financial Services team, led by M-DCPS CFO, Ron Steiger.
As always, the dedicated MDCPS team was represented in the race, by Lead Resolution Manager Olga Benitez, Senior Resolution Manager Briginette Alfonso and Claims Representative Associate Francheska Pinto-Aguilar.
Senior Account Manager Alisha Auth had her own team in the race – her daughters Aubrey and Avery completed their first 5k in the effort to support the Foundation for New Education Initiatives effort to promote health and wellness in local schools and the surrounding communities.
Superintendent Alberto Carvalho posted on social media: “It's not about winning, it’s about trying and showing up...and nearly 4,000 people did that today. Thanks for joining us at the #MiamiSup5K and supporting public education.”
No one demonstrates showing up better than the MDCPS Rebuilding Me Team! Gallagher Bassett is a proud supporter Rebuilding Me, a loss prevention and wellness program established by the Miami Dade County Public Schools Risk Management department. “We are so proud of our transportation group and all that they have accomplished” says Naomi Kuker, GB supervisor and Rebuilding Me leader. “Last year, we had 17 participants, and this year, we were 52 strong!”
We, at Gallagher Bassett, are proud to support Miami-Dade County Public Schools, and their commitment to our community, public education, and giving our students the world. http://www.giveourstudentstheworld.org
