The Hartford Extends Partnership With U.S. Paralympics Through 2016 Rio De Janeiro Paralympic Games

Stocks in this article: HIG

The Hartford and the United States Olympic Committee (USOC) today announced The Hartford has renewed its sponsorship of U.S. Paralympics, a division of the USOC dedicated to recruiting and training elite athletes with physical disabilities. The Hartford, which began a founding partnership of U.S. Paralympics in 2003, will continue as the Official Disability Insurance Sponsor of U.S. Paralympics through 2016.

“The partnership between The Hartford, with our focus on achievement and ability, and the U.S. Paralympic team is a natural fit,” said Mike Concannon, executive vice president of Group Benefits for The Hartford. “We have been a strong supporter of U.S. Paralympic athletes since 1994, and are proud to continue our partnership of helping individuals break through physical limitations to achieve greatness.”

“The Hartford has had a tremendous impact on the Paralympic movement in the United States,” said Charlie Huebner, U.S. Olympic Committee Chief of Paralympics. “Throughout its long history with U.S. Paralympics, including more than 15 years of sponsoring programs, organizations and world-class athletes, the company has been a true leader and we are proud that our great partnership will continue.”

As part of the partnership, The Hartford sponsors and organizes more than 200 events featuring U.S. Paralympic athletes throughout the United States annually. These events provide a terrific opportunity for The Hartford’s employees, clients and agency partners to share a meaningful experience in the course of everyday business. These events also create educational opportunities across the U.S. to promote awareness – particularly within the business community – about the value that employees with disabilities bring to the workplace.

Events include The Hartford’s Paralympic Experiences, in which able-bodied professionals experience what it’s like to overcome a physical limitation to achieve success. In conjunction with the London 2012 Paralympic Games, The Hartford launched the Achieve Without Limits Campaign to give consumers the opportunity to engage with elite U.S. Paralympic athletes, to be inspired by the athletes’ stories, and understand what it means to achieve without limits.
