“TEAMPHLY Battle in the Lava Fields” aims to raise money for charity

Two multiple Ironman finishers, and leaders within Philadelphia Insurance Companies (PHLY), will give it their all in the spirit of competition to support families of sick children. TEAMPHLY Battle in the Lava Fields is a competition to raise money for Ronald McDonald House Charities® (RMHC®).

Philadelphia Insurance Chairman and CEO Jamie Maguire and Vice President of Customer Service Seth Hall are competing in the Ironman World Championships in Kona, HI on Saturday, October 13th. They’re raising money by inviting the public to visit and vote for who they think will have the fastest time.

“TEAMPHLY is all about giving back through competition,” said Maguire, a veteran of two Ironman World Championships. “Kona is the ultimate test and also provides a tremendous opportunity to help families through Ronald McDonald House Charities.”

“My family will be with me to cheer me on in Hawaii and keeping families together when children are facing a serious medical crisis is the goal of Ronald McDonald House,” shared Hall, a multiple Ironman and marathon finisher. “This organization does so much to keep families together and I’m inspired to give it my all.”

Battle in the Lava Fields features bios of both athletes, as well as their equipment and personal mantras. The public can vote at for who they think will win by making a donation to Ronald McDonald House Charities. For every $5 donated online, individuals will be entered into a raffle to win a brand new Specialized (Roubaix men’s or Ruby women’s) road bike courtesy of High Road Cycles.

Made up of Philadelphia Insurance employees, family and friends, TEAMPHLY encourages individuals to live and maintain a healthy lifestyle while supporting organizations with the same values. The mission of RMHC is to create, find and support programs that directly improve the health and well-being of children.

Philadelphia Insurance Companies, a commercial property/casualty and professional liability insurance company, launched its “PHLY Cares” 50th anniversary campaign in July. As a leading provider of insurance coverage for non-profit organizations, PHLY is celebrating its 50 years in business by focusing on its history and culture of giving back through health and wellness. The Company is more than halfway to its $250,000 goal, raising nearly $150,000 to date for Ronald McDonald House Charities® (RMHC®), and its local Chapters. To reach the goal, employees from each of PHLY’s 46 regional offices are volunteering and raising money for their local RMHC Chapters throughout the year.
