Junior Achievement Bowl-a-Thon

There are simply some things in life that you cannot do without, and bowling is one of those things. Few experiences in life provide the satisfaction that comes with nailing all ten pins let alone capturing that elusive turkey, or better yet picking up the spare on a nasty split which wins you a free dinner from a friend doubting your ability! Take this excitement, add in some young actuaries who are grateful for the time away from studying, all the while doing it for charity, and well, it’s something no words can accurately describe.
We’ve had a team from the Denver office participate for a couple years running now in the Junior Achievement (JA) Bowl-a-Thon. This event raises awareness and financial support for Junior Achievement, which is a nation-wide non-profit that inspires and prepares young people to succeed in a global economy by developing financial literacy, entrepreneurial skills, and general work-readiness through volunteers that mentor and teach. The Bowl-a-Thon is a jointly sponsored event where many companies in the Denver metro area participate with the same goal in mind.
The culture of Cigna is all about serving our customers and the communities in which we work and live. This is evident through the matching donations and community service hours Cigna provides for employees to encourage these activities. The JA Bowl-a-Thon is just one of several opportunities where you can help the greater good while having a fun time in the process.
