Navigators Announces Title Sponsorship Of Stamford KIC IT Triathlon To Benefit Kids In Crisis

NEW YORK, NY, Oct. 16, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- The Navigators Group, Inc. (NASDAQ:NAVG) announced today its five-year partnership with Connecticut nonprofit Kids in Crisis, in which it will become the title sponsor of the newly-named Navigators Stamford KIC IT Triathlon. The triathlon, in which 600 athletes take part in Stamford each June, is an Olympic-distance event consisting of a 1.5k swim in Long Island Sound, a 40k bike ride, and a 10k run through the streets of downtown Stamford. Navigators headquarters moved from Rye Brook, NY to Stamford, CT in September 2013.

"At Navigators, we believe that part of a corporation's responsibility is to be a meaningful and active part of the communities in which we work and conduct business," said Stanley A. Galanski, President and CEO of The Navigators Group, Inc. "We are so delighted to be able to partner with such an important Connecticut cause as Kids in Crisis. The triathlon finishes just a few blocks from our new corporate headquarters and we feel fortunate to be able to sponsor an organization that gives so much to our community."

"Kids in Crisis is thrilled to partner with such a philanthropic-minded company as Navigators," said Shari Shapiro, Executive Director of Kids in Crisis. "Net proceeds raised from this event enables Kids in Crisis to provide a structured, nurturing, home-like environment for children when respite is needed, and deliver successful prevention programs for families throughout Connecticut.  The Navigators Stamford KIC IT Triathlon is a wonderful way to bring together the local community and spread awareness about the services Kids in Crisis provides."

The Stamford KIC IT Triathlon was created in 2008 to support the services offered by Kids in Crisis. Since its introduction, the Stamford KIC IT Triathlon has grown into an outstanding athletic event attracting competitors from across the country, while maintaining a special focus on offering a fun family experience. The success of the Stamford KIC IT Triathlon has been made possible by great support from area businesses, individuals, and City government. More than 30 members of the community--residents, business owners, athletes and corporate executives--collaborate throughout the year to produce this noteworthy event.
