This is the latest announcement in an expanding relationship between Cigna and
Achilles International. Since 2012, Cigna and the Cigna Foundation have
donated nearly $90K to Achilles. During that period, Cigna and Achilles have
forged a unique collaboration through which selected Cigna long-term
disability customers have access to Achilles programs, including individual
coaching, personal training, a community of support and an opportunity to
participate in activities with other Achilles athletes.

“We’re grateful to Cigna for helping our wounded veterans and other runners
feel the power of participating in sports and activities that help restore
their physical strength, confidence, and self-esteem,” said Chris Holcomb,
Regional Director of Achilles Florida. Holcomb, who is also an Achilles
athlete, is participating in his nineteenth marathon this weekend in Ft.
Lauderdale.

“Cigna and Achilles International are working together to help every
individual reach their full potential regardless of the personal challenges
they face,” said David Guilmette, President, Global Employer Segment, Cigna.
