On Sunday, March 22nd, 2016, the Vermont General Office helped sponsor the RJ's Rice Run at Rice Memorial High School in South Burlington.  This event is a 5k/10k run that honors long time teacher and coach RJ Noonan.  The proceeds of this event support upgrades to the Rice Memorial Fitness Center.  Our volunteers were able to provide waters and snacks to the participants of the event, while also running into a familiar New York Life face, retired EVP Mark Pfaff!
