  • Lincoln Financial Group Sponsors American Paralympian Set to Climb Mount Everest

    February 22, 2016 by Business Wire

    RADNOR, Pa.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Lincoln Financial Group today announced its sponsorship of Jeff Glasbrenner, a Paralympic athlete whose goal is to successfully climb the North Side of Mount Everest this year.

    Glasbrenner’s background is one of overcoming obstacles: At just eight years old, he lost his right leg in an accident on his family farm. He was told he would never run, swim or participate in sports again.

    In college, he discovered wheelchair basketball, which spurred his drive to excel in the athletic world. Glasbrenner went on to become a three-time Paralympian and two-time World Champion in wheelchair basketball and finish 25 long-distance triathlons. In 2010, he was the first athlete, amputee or not, to complete eight long-distance triathlons in eight months. Glasbrenner plans to begin his Mount Everest climb in May 2016.

    “I want to share my story with others, and this partnership with Lincoln Financial Group makes that possible,” said Glasbrenner. “During a time when I am setting out to achieve one of my biggest personal aspirations, this gives me a platform to talk about the importance of setting goals and why a positive attitude is crucial to achieving them.”

    Dick Mucci, president of Group Protection at Lincoln Financial Group, said “Throughout his life, Jeff has consistently turned tragedy into opportunity. He represents so many of the values Lincoln stands for—optimism, perseverance and the will to set and achieve goals.”

    As a provider of insurance products such as disability and life, many Lincoln employees often work with individuals who have experienced physical or emotional challenges. “Through this sponsorship, we not only get to share in this incredible journey with Jeff, but we also hope to inspire our partners, clients and customers to set their sights on the peak of their own ‘personal Everest,’ and to remind them that Lincoln is here to help,” said Mucci.
