Woodland Hills, CA (January 29, 2014) — Mitchell Beer CLU®, ChFC®, CFP®, Managing Partner of Northwestern Mutual – The Beer Financial Group, today announced his firm will serve as Presenting Sponsor of the 29th Annual Dole Great Race of Agoura Hills on Saturday, March 22, 2014. Expectations are that 7,000 runners and another 3,000+ spectators will show up to support this event. Comprised of the nation’s top, two Half Marathons, The Great Race is a major fundraising event for local schools and other charities. This year, the group, www.beerfinancialgroup.com will be raising money for Alex’s Lemonade Stand Foundation (ALSF) for Childhood Cancer (www.alexslemonade.org).
“To date ALSF has raised more than $75 million and funded over 375 research projects to help put an end to childhood cancer,” says Mitchell Beer. “We all know someone who has been affected by cancer and we want to use this opportunity to take an active stand in helping raise money for cancer research.
“Additionally, as a financial advisory firm it is our job is to keep our clients in the best financial health possible, so good health is a common theme for us. By sponsoring the Great Race, we support good health and support the schools that educate our clients’ kids and grandkids while making a positive impact in our whole community.”
Mitch got involved with the Great Race six years ago when he decided to run the Half Marathon. “I had never run a Half Marathon before,” says Mitch. It was such a positive experience that many of our financial reps joined me in the effort. Last year, we had 40 – 50 financial reps and staff participate. Everyone enjoyed themselves and it was a great way to bond with others in our community.”
The Great Race is made up of six individual races: the noted Pacific and Chesebro Half Marathons; the Old Agoura 10K, one of the top 10Ks in the country; The Deena Kastor 5K, named for the Olympic Marathon Bronze Medalist and multiple American record holder; the Kids Mile; and The Family Run. This is The Beer Financial Group’s third year as a major sponsor. Last year, the firm raised almost $10,000 for Alex’s Lemonade; this year, their goal is to raise $25,000.
