By Mai Ling Slaughter | Published July 20, 2021
For Advanced Professionals Insurance & Benefit Solutions, sponsoring the Hike-a-Thon fundraiser to support the Washington Trails Association is an opportunity to embrace Newfront’s Work, Love, Play ethos while giving back to the community.
The annual event is a month-long excuse to hit the trails for a good cause as participants hike, share stories of their outdoor adventures, and raise funds that directly support trails in Washington state.
Advanced Professionals – the wholesale benefits practice of Newfront – is sponsoring Hike-a-Thon in conjunction with client ALLtech Benefits Trust, which offers employee benefits to Washington-based businesses in the information technology industry. ALLtech partners also sponsoring the event include:
Regence BlueShield, which underwrites medical insurance for ALLtech.
Delta Dental of Washington, which underwrites dental insurance for ALLtech..
Associated Industries Management Services, the third-party administrator for ALLtech.
Let’s Hit the Trails
In addition to sponsoring Hike-a-Thon this August, Advanced Professionals will be participating in the event as members of the ALLtech team.
“We’re thrilled to join our ALLtech partners both on and off the trails to help support this event and the Washington Trails Association,” says Keith VanderZanden, Executive Vice President and Practice Leader of Advanced Professionals. “As a team, we value health and wellness not only for our clients and customers, but also for our own well-being.”
Advanced Professionals’ participation in Hike-a-Thon also supports the three pillars of Newfront: Work, Love, Play. Newfront and Advanced Professionals encourage employees to fill each of their work, love, and play buckets. The team values balanced lives and are passionate about creating a culture of wellness that results in healthier, happier, more productive employees, and more successful clients.
