On June 27th, the Flame of Hope for the Special Olympics Unified Relay Across America (URAA) arrived in Boise, Idaho. The URAA has three torches making three different treks across the United States where they will converge in Los Angeles for the 2015 Special Olympics World Games. By the end of their journey, all 50 states will have been visited by the URAA and a Flame of Hope torch. The URAA raises funds for the Special Olympics “to provide sports training, competition opportunities and additional programming that empowers people with intellectual disabilities to become accepted and valued members of their communities.”
Alliance Title & Escrow Corp. was honored to be a sponsor for the event and fulfill the role of torchbearer for the Flame of Hope as it travelled through Boise. Alliance Title, AmeriTitle, and Futura Title & Escrow Corp. employees and their family members were able to participate in the special event. Attendees included Alliance Title and AmeriTitle CEO, Larry Matney; Alliance Title Senior Vice President and Corporate Business Development Director, Jenny Martin; Futura Title Senior Vice President and Chief Financial Officer, Mark Mills, and his two children, Isaac and Madeline; Todd Brashear, the spouse of Alliance Title Senior Vice President and Chief Human Resources Officer, Kathy Brashear; AmeriTitle Business Development Representative, Ron Jantzen, and his son and daughter; Alliance Title Benefits Specialist, Wendie Slater, and her husband, Robin; Alliance Title Corporate Controller, Dacia Abols; and Alliance Title Corporate Business Development Team Lead, Korena Carter, and her daughter.
