Insurance Information Institute (I.I.I.) colleagues, family and friends joined together to raise funds and to participate in last Sundayâ€™s Susan G Komen New York City Race for the Cure 5K walk/run. First held in 1991, the race is now one of the largest in New York City and this year more than 25,000Â took toÂ the routeÂ in Central Park. The Race for the Cure series raises significant funds and awareness for the fight against breast cancer, celebrates breast cancer survivorship, and honors those who have lost their battle with the disease. Despite 90 degree temperatures, Iâ€™m pleased to report that all I.I.I. team members made it to the finish line. Donations are still coming in, but the team expects to raise close to $4,000 in total. Check out our team picture below.
