Cigna in the Community

Cigna New Zealand is committed to improving the lives of New Zealanders through health, well-being and sense of security solutions. Our approach to community support is the same.  We believe that investing in the health of our communities directly connects with our overall success.

Sponsorships

Cigna partners with non-profit organizations that work to improve the health and wellbeing of individuals, families and communities.

Cigna Round the Bays Fun Run

Cigna Round the Bays is an iconic Wellington sporting event run each year by Sport Wellington which has sold out for the last four years. It is the largest participation sport and recreation event in the lower North Island with the 2016 event seeing 13,800 registered participants.

You can choose to take part in the 6.5km, the 10km or Cigna Achilles Half Marathon race. All races start at Frank Kitts Park and finish at Kilbirnie Park where there is a recovery zone, food, socialising and entertainment. The 2016 event was a great day for Cigna staff as well as participants. Check out our video and photo album of the event

Cigna Day

Cigna Day is the day that our employees join forces with all the other Cigna employees around the world to help the communities that we live and work in.  This year we helped with the Cigna Kids Fun Run on Wellington's Waterfront Frank Kitts Park.  

You can see some exciting photos of the day on our Facebook page.

Donation to City Mission

Christmas is a time of giving. So this year we donated Christmas treats and toys to Auckland and Wellington City Mission to help families in need.  You can see our CEO, Lance Walker, playing Santa and spreading some Christmas cheer here on our Facebook page!

Habitat for Humanity

In March last year, three of our employees joined 45 Cigna employees from around the globe to partner with Habitat for Humanity Indonesia to build six houses for low income families.  Check out the infographic to get more details and then watch the video photo clip to get a glimpse of the team in action.

This year, 2 of our staff members are off to Thailand to build 3 houses for local families. Read about their trip here:
