For the fourth consecutive year, NAGICO Insurance has signed a sponsorship agreement with Reuben Stoby, the reigning two-time Road Racing Athlete of the Year for the Virgin Islands.

Reuben has over the years proven to be a formidable national champion at the 2-mile, 5K and 10K distances.

According to NAGICO in a press release, Stoby continues to race towards his future goal to compete in the 2020 Olympic Games in Tokyo.

“Reuben continues to give us reasons to be proud of him. His dedication to training and commitment to working hard are all shining examples for many to emulate. His inspiration is part of what drives the Virgin Islands' resilient spirit even after two fierce hurricanes last year," said Mr. Shan Mohamed, Managing Director.

According to the Cross Country Champion, he will continue to give of his best in training and competitions to ensure that the NAGICO partnership remains a winning one.

“NAGICO’s support reminds me that there are people who care and wish to see us succeed in our ambitions. I am also thrilled that I am one of many that NAGICO has reached out to with their corporate support,” Stoby stated.

Previously, NAGICO sponsored Reuben as he competed in the Antigua Half Marathon in May, 2016 where he placed 5th. He also made his debut on the track in July 2016 when he competed in the 5000m at the OECS Track & Field Championships in the BVI, placing sixth.

NAGICO continues to demonstrate good corporate responsibility through contributions to cricket, squash, tennis, music, among others.

NAGICO has been a long-time partner of the community groups, including the Rotary Clubs of the BVI, Family Support Network, BVI Cancer Society, BVI Red Cross, and the BVI HIV/AIDS Foundation.

Pleased Nagico are giving something back, but Reuben has lost his status as champion. He is now sometimes only the third fastest and I think he may not even be on the podium next year.
