Insurance Department Supporting Gov. Stitt
by Running OKC Memorial Marathon


OKLAHOMA CITY – Insurance Commissioner Glen Mulready and his staff are answering the call from Gov. Kevin Stitt. This week, the Oklahoma Insurance Department signed up to compete in the Governor’s Relay Challenge at the 2019 Oklahoma City Memorial Marathon.

“We stand behind the Governor and his push for a healthier Oklahoma,” said Commissioner Mulready. “This is a great way to support Gov. Stitt, the Oklahoma City Memorial and the people who were, and continue to be, affected by the Oklahoma City bombing.”

The Oklahoma Insurance Department has 13 staff members participating in the race which consist of one relay team and six people running the 5K race. Winners of each race category will be invited to breakfast with Gov. Stitt.

“We hope our involvement as a state agency will encourage others to sign up for a little healthy competition,” said Commissioner Mulready.
