AIG’s Winter Summit Raises $686,800 To Benefit Disabled Sports USA’s Warfighter Sports Program

Stocks in this article: AIG

American International Group, Inc. (NYSE: AIG) announced today that its 2014 Winter Summit raised $686,800 to benefit Disabled Sports USA’s (DSUSA) Warfighter Sports program. The Stowe event raised $586,800 for the program and AIG contributed an additional $100,000.

The Winter Summit has been held annually at Stowe Mountain Resort in Vermont for more than 25 years. It is attended by AIG business partners and insurance professionals from across the insurance industry, as well as DSUSA athletes, all of whom participate in ski and snowboarding races to raise funds for the Warfighter Sports program.

The event this year included DSUSA members who represented the U.S. at the Sochi, Russia, Paralympics, including Jon Lujan, a Marine veteran who was elected U.S. flag bearer by his fellow Paralympians.

“After I arrived home from Iraq, I never imagined I would one day represent TeamUSA,” said Mr. Lujan. “My time in Sochi was a direct result of the support and opportunity provided to me by Disabled Sports USA. The dollars raised by AIG is much welcomed assistance for DSUSA’s Warfighter Sports program as it continues its mission helping veterans recover and thrive.”

The Warfighter Sports program offers sports rehabilitation for severely wounded warriors in military hospitals and communities across the U.S. through a nationwide network of over 100 community-based chapters. Since 2003, more than 8,000 of the most severely wounded and their families have been served, including those with amputations, traumatic brain injury, spinal cord injury, visual impairments, and significant nerve and muscle damage.

Peter Hancock, Chief Executive Officer of AIG Property Casualty, said, “We are very proud of our relationship with Disabled Sports USA. For years our Winter Summit has brought together AIG and its business partners to share ideas, while supporting a truly worthy cause. I can think of no cause worthier than helping those who sacrificed so much for their country to rebuild their lives and pursue their passions.”
