Gary Morris, CEO at Rampart Insurance Services from Long Island, New York, shares his story about why he and his team choose to participate in the Chubb Charity Challenge every year:
“I’ve been participating in the Chubb Charity Challenge since day one, and playing in the tournament is always an enjoyable way to give back. Plus, we’ve won our regional tournament twice, so we have bragging rights. However, what’s most important and what inspires me to get out there every year is the charity we chose and the relationship we have with Chubb.
We represent the Cohen Children's Medical Center because it is an organization that is very near and dear to my family’s heart. I’ve always known Cohen Children’s as a great organization that helps thousands of kids every year. But what really opened my eyes to the amazing services and people at Cohen Children’s was my cousin’s diagnosis of Non-Hodgkin’s Lymphoma about 22 years ago when he was just 15 years old. My family tried to be there for him in whatever way we could, spending every day in the hospital for six to nine months, sleeping on the floor while we watched him struggle through chemotherapy. However, we couldn’t do it alone. It was the staff at Cohen Children’s that made a meaningful difference in his quality of life. Seeing how caring everyone at the hospital was — not just doctors and nurses, but even the cafeteria workers and laundry staff — showed us how special this place truly is for children suffering from life-threatening illnesses and their families.
