Our Commitment To Community
Sunshine Insurance is the lead sponsor and organizer of the Sunshine Insurance Race Weekend (SIRW), which encompasses the Susan G. Komen Bahamas Race for the Cure® and Marathon Bahamas. The yearly event raises hundreds of thousands of dollars for cancer charities.

In 2009, Sunshine’s Marketing Department presented the marathon idea to the company’s chairman, Franklyn Wilson, as a corporate initiative to raise public awareness on cancer-related issues and to align the company with a positive cause. Since then, the event has grown in popularity and has become a staple on the sports tourism calendar.

Sunshine Insurance, in partnership with Elmira College, holds annual speech competitions for high school students in grades 10-12. The competition gives students the opportunity to walk away with thousands of dollars in scholarship money to attend Elmira College.

Sunshine Insurance also believes heavily in the nation’s youth and encourages them to excel in academics through its Little Miss Sunshine and Little Mr. Sunshine sponsorship. The company chooses high achievers from inner-city schools and rewards them.
