Florida Peninsula Insurance Company (FPI) and its “Florida Peninsula Gives Back” team are pleased to announce the company fulfilled its commitment to attend six Susan G. Komen "Race for the Cure"®  events around Florida this year. Florida Peninsula is passionately committed to giving back to the communities where its employees work and live, and proudly supports several local charitable events. As “Race for the Cure” events were held throughout the year, Florida Peninsula and its agents in neighboring counties joined together to run and walk for a cure.   

Florida Peninsula participated in Komen events in Estero, Jacksonville, Lakeland, Miami, St. Petersburg and West Palm Beach. 

“As individuals we can do a little, but as a team we can do a lot to make a change,” said Mariella Gonzalez, Florida Peninsula Agency Support Manager. Ms. Gonzalez heads the “Florida Peninsula Gives Back” team, and has worked with company employees to plan several community events, including Habitat for Humanity Build Days and backpack donations to students across Florida.

Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure® is the largest series of 5K runs/walks in the world. The events raise money and awareness for the fight against breast cancer, celebrate breast cancer survivorship and honor those who have lost their battle with the disease. According to the website, up to 75 percent of the net income from each domestic affiliate race stays in the local community to fund breast health education and breast cancer screening and treatment projects.
