The Atlanta insurance community has once again come together
to form Insure the Cure to support
the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation. Insure the Cure was formed in 2011 in
honor of Clay Snellings’ daughter, Emily.
Emily was born with cystic fibrosis, a life-threatening genetic disease
that primarily affects the lungs and digestive system. Currently, there
is no cure.
Since its inception in 2011, the insurance community has
raised over $1,400,000. The industry has banded together agencies, companies,
brokers and re-insurers who on most days are fierce competitors, but have
united to find a cure for Emily and the 30,000 others living with CF.
For 2018, Insure the Cure, has set a goal to recruit 60 teams for the Atlanta Great Strides Walk on May19th at Suwanee Town Center. As our key partners across the state of Georgia, we are asking once againfor you to join us in the fight for a cure.
*Unum also has a team under the Insure the Cure umbrella. Due to the fact that they are also National Corporate Great Strides team, Unum's totals are not reflected on this page.

Important note on Attendance at Foundation Events:
Infections can exacerbate CF symptoms and worsen lung function, so we ask attendees at Foundation-sponsored events to observe the following best practices to reduce the risk of germ transmission:
Regularly wash hands with soap and water or with an alcohol-based hand gel.
Cover coughs and sneezes with a tissue or your inner elbow.
Maintain a safe 6-foot distance from anyone with a cold or infection.
To further reduce the risk of cross-infection, the Foundation’s attendance policy recommends that all people with CF maintain a safe 6-foot distance from each other at all times while attending an outdoor Foundation-sponsored event. All Great Strides walks are non-smoking events.
