Girls on the Run of the Rockies Chapter to cover race registration fees through Cigna

DENVER, CO /ENDURANCE SPORTSWIRE/ — The Denver Colfax Marathon announced today that Cigna is continuing its title sponsorship for the 2023 Denver Colfax Marathon. This renewed partnership comes with a greater focus on strengthening the health and well-being of the Denver community.

As part of its 2023 sponsorship, Cigna will pay the entry fee for 2,000 Girls on the Run of the Rockies participants who will compete in next May’s marathon. The Girls on the Run chapter of the Rockies is a nonprofit organization that supports girls in third through eighth grades throughout the Front Range.

The Denver Colfax Marathon also has one of the largest charity affiliate programs in the country, with more than 200 nonprofit organizations using the marathon each year to raise money and raise awareness. Nonprofits can keep all of the money they raise through the marathon platform, and the marathon also awards $100,000 to local nonprofits each year.

“Cigna is an incredible partner and we’re thrilled that they continue to be the presenting sponsor of our race,” said Andrea Dowdy, CEO of the Denver Colfax Marathon. “The company’s investment in our marathon has created a better experience for runners and our community.”

“Our renewed commitment to the Denver Colfax Marathon is a phenomenal opportunity to advance holistic care in our communities through the balance between healthy living and good emotional health,” said Brett Winingham, leader for the Cigna Mountain States. “We look forward to supporting the race – and empowering these brave girls as they take on one of their toughest physical challenges yet.”

The Girls on the Run program is a physical activity-based youth development program that aims to improve girls’ social, psychological and physical skills. The group’s mission is to inspire girls from all backgrounds to be happy, healthy and confident using an experience-based curriculum that integrates movement.

Cigna first partnered with the Denver Colfax Marathon last May for the 2022 marathon weekend. The company has over 70,000 colleagues around the world and nearly 2,000 here in Colorado, with the Mountain States region being headquartered in Denver.

The 17thth The weekend of the Denver Colfax Marathon is scheduled for May 19-21, 2023 and is expected to attract more than 20,000 runners. Cigna will also sponsor the Cigna Health and Fitness Expo taking place during the race weekend. The Expo welcomes almost 50,000 guests over the three days.
