Aetna Sponsors The Delta Foundation Walk In Washington, D.C.

Stocks in this article: AET

Aetna (NYSE: AET) will be the corporate sponsor for The Delta Research and Educational Foundation’s 5-K Centennial Walk and Health Fair, which will be held July 12 on the National Mall.

The Foundation was established by Delta Sigma Theta Sorority Inc., the world’s largest Greek-lettered African-American sorority. The public charity supports scholastic achievement, public service programs, and research initiatives focused on African-American women.

U.S. Surgeon General Regina Benjamin will be grand marshal of the 5-K walk and will deliver opening remarks. Actress Suzzanne Douglas ( The Parent Hood) will sing the national anthem. Douglas and Dr. Benjamin are Delta Sigma Theta members.

Delta Sigma Theta was founded at Washington, D.C.’s Howard University on Jan. 13, 1913. The July 12 event is part of a broader celebration of the sorority’s 100 th anniversary. More than 50,000 people are expected to be in attendance that day, with a goal of more than 1,000 participants in the walk.

“The Delta Foundation welcomes and thanks Aetna for its sponsorship of our 5-K Centennial Walk and Health Fair,” said Alison J. Harmon, Ed.D., president of The Delta Foundation. “This first-time collaboration recognizes and celebrates the importance of keeping health, wellness and fitness top-of-mind among African-American women and girls.”

In addition to its $30,000 sponsorship of the walk, Aetna will sponsor the “Aetna Rejuvenation Station,” where back massage therapists will be available for walkers participating in the July 12 event. On the mornings of July 15-17, fitness trainers will conduct workout sessions for Delta Sigma Theta members and their guests at multiple Washington, D.C. hotels.

“Aetna is delighted to support the efforts of Delta Sigma Theta Sorority and its foundation,” said Floyd W. Green, III, Aetna’s head of Community Relations and Urban Marketing. “We’ve worked closely over the years with many national black Greek fraternities and sororities. Delta Sigma Theta members have been at the center of numerous programs that have made a real difference in their communities.”
