SouthGroup Insurance Services, an independent insurance agency with 22 branch offices throughout Mississippi, recently made a donation to the South Central Health Care Foundation. 

SouthGroup hosted its 11th annual Make a Difference 5K and Fun Run in Ridgeland to raise funds for non-profit healthcare organizations. More than 400 runners and walkers from all over the state, including Laurel, participated in this year’s race.  

Since the first race in 2009, SouthGroup has raised and contributed over $300,000 to Friends of Children’s Hospital at the University of Mississippi Medical Center. This year, the SouthGroup Board of Directors made the decision to also make contributions in various locations throughout the state, such as Laurel, in which SouthGroup operates branch offices.  

Proceeds raised were donated to the South Central Health Care Foundation. Funds will be used to provide health education resources to individuals in our community. South Central Health Care Foundation thanks SouthGroup of Laurel for their generous donation.

South Central Health Care Foundation is a not-for-profit organization whose purpose is to provide healthcare services and educational resources through health screenings, support groups, community assistance and healthcare educational opportunities.
