CXIS was a proud Platinum Sponsor of Running for All Children, supporting All Children’s Hospital

CX Insurance Services isn’t just about supporting property and casualty insurance companies. Not only do we aim to provide exceptional service to our clients, but we also work hard to support our community. As part of our community outreach, we were proud to lend our support to the Run for All Children, which benefits the John Hopkins All Children’s Hospital in St. Petersburg, FL.

 

For Carson and All the Children

In 2010, Brian Powers and his family suffered a devastating loss. Their son, Carson, was prematurely born, along with his twin sister. Carson passed away surrounded by his loving family shortly after birth. Powers, wanting to support the medical professionals who dedicated their lives to helping children like his son, used his loss to create a powerful event that not only helps raise funds for a great hospital but also increases awareness.

This year’s race was the third annual in what is becoming a Mother’s Day weekend tradition. Begun in 2014, the Run for All Children initially called Safety Harbor home, but the popularity of the event and the number of amazing participants have grown so much it was necessary to relocate. Now the race course takes runners through downtown St. Petersburg.

Two thousand runners queued up at the starting line in front of the hospital to run and walk. Many had personal stories to share about why they were supporting the hospital. A cornerstone of the community, Johns Hopkins All Children’s Hospital has helped treat many of St. Pete’s young population, touching the lives of families across the city.

As the race was about to begin, the runners turned to face the hospital. They waved at the patients cheering from their rooms before beginning the course. It was clear the runners carried those faces in their hearts as they made their way across the finish line and high-fived Thunderbug, the mascot of the Tampa Bay Lightning.

 

Supporting the John Hopkins All Children’s Hospital

Run for All Children 1 mile

We are honored to be able to provide our support and do our part to help the amazing doctors, nurses, and staff at the John Hopkins All Children’s Hospital in St. Petersburg. Just like the patients they serve, they are truly heroes. Our hearts were full as we watched people from across the community come together for this wonderful cause.

The Johns Hopkins All Children’s Hospital provides life-saving care to children of all ages. They also focus on research, advocacy, and education. Their caring staff not only work hard to treat the patients in their care, they also showed their love for their hospital and what it stands for by participating in the race itself. These amazing caregivers spread joy wherever they go, bringing smiles to the children in their care.

 

Keeping the Run for All Children Spirit Alive Year Round

Humbled by the perseverance of the youngest among us and their fortitude, we look forward to tackling any challenges we face head-on with innovative ideas and full hearts. The spirit of giving that filled the air during the run, the sense of community building, and the conviction of supporting a cause because it is the right thing to do will stick with us as we work hard to serve our clients with their best interest in mind.

CXIS aims to provide the best possible service to our clients by anticipating their needs. We know P&C insurance and what it takes to truly support agents. That’s why we create dedicated teams to support our clients. Let CXIS take the administrative insurance tasks off your hands so you can focus on the finish line.
