Health Insurance Advisor’s Event for Health Cause
It’s a nice combination when a successful health insurance advisor organizes an event for a health cause. We are talking about Lorne Marr who organized a wonderful bowling event this February to help Lupus Ontario, a charity helping lupus patients. Lorne Marr is the Director of New Business Development of LSM Insurance in Markham, Ontario. CFP, MBA, and a health insurance advisor for more than 11 years, Lorne Marr has been an eligible MDRT member since 1994 and this year he qualified for MDRT Court of the Table. Lorne Marr believes in keeping a healthy balance between personal and business life, and also involves himself in philanthropy.
The bowling event was just a small evidence of this philanthropic element of Lorne Marr which was held on 7th February 2014. This was the first Lupus/LSM Charity Bowling Event.
The people at Lupus Ontario work hard every day to improve the quality of life of lupus patients. Therefore LSM Insurance felt indeed proud to work with them and sponsor the inaugural Lupus/LSM charity bowling event.
Minimum donation was of $35 and the event had prizes like:
- The team with the overall best score
- The top single game score
- The team with the lowest score
What’s more, there was also a yummy, but difficult-to-achieve prize of “turkey” for bowling consecutively three strikes.
With this fabulous event, LSM Insurance raised more than $2,000. They also matched the first $500 raised.
Lupus is an autoimmune disorder which means that body’s own immune system starts attacking body’s own cells. The cells mainly affected are that of joints and it results in terrible pain and inflammation. In severe condition, the disease can cause major damage to various organs in the body. Though symptoms can be controlled with medication, exercise, rest and doctor visits, Lupus is incurable till date.
LSM Insurance being a health insurance brokerage firm comes across hundreds of policies which involve critical illnesses. So, they are not new to the monetary and emotional destruction caused by a disorder like Lupus. LSM a proactive company fights the challenges of critical illnesses face-to-face by providing education and knowledge about how health insurance eases the financial load and by raising funds for charitable organizations that fight such diseases.
