Transamerica and the American Heart Association Rock (‘n’ Roll) Denver

Transamerica Tomorrow Chasers

Andrew MacQueen’s daughter was 3 months old when she was diagnosed with a congenital heart defect. Nathan Lowther’s father had his first heart attack at age 56. And Vanessa Diaz’s mother passed away from an undiagnosed heart condition.

Heart disease has touched the lives of these Transamerica employees, and many of our customers, which has led to a unique program in which MacQueen, Lowther, and Diaz and two of their colleagues will run their first 13.1-mile half marathon while raising money for the American Heart Association.

The Transamerica runners—called Tomorrow Chasers—will line up at the back of the pack of the Transamerica Rock ‘n’ Roll Denver Half Marathon. And all five will be running their first 13.1-mile half marathon.

When they reach the finish line, Transamerica will donate a dollar to the American Heart Association for every runner the Tomorrow Chasers passed along the course.

As part of its commitment to healthy, active living, Transamerica is a proud sponsor of the Competitor Group’s nationwide Rock ‘n’ Roll Marathon Series, events that draw thousands of runners of every ability who participate in fun, engaging, and inspiring challenges.

Supporting the Rock ‘n’ Roll series is just part of Transamerica’s commitment to health and community. Transamerica sponsors professional triathlete Ben Hoffman; pro golfers Zach Johnson, Tom Watson, Kyle Stanley, and Azahara Munoz; Ironman® and Life Time® triathlons, and Major League Soccer’s Colorado Rapids. In addition, we support the American Heart Association and Habitat for Humanity as well as the Alzheimer’s Association® and scientific research at the Stanford Center on Longevity and the Massachusetts Institute of Technology AgeLab.

Transamerica President and CEO Mark Mullin explained how community wellness goes beyond financial concerns.

“Our core purpose is to help individuals and families achieve a lifetime of financial security,” Mullin said. “At the same time, we recognize that in order to fully enjoy the benefits of good financial planning, it’s essential to also enjoy the benefits of long-term physical well-being. It’s about making the right choices and sticking with them.”
