Meet Team Hartford

Meet Team Hartford 2018

When you’re willing to push boundaries, you can move mountains – that’s the will to prevail. It’s a willingness to dig deeper and go further in the name of success. And to not give up even though we might want to. They will. We will, too.
 
The will to prevail is what drives Team Hartford’s U.S. Paralympians in everything they do. It’s also what drives us here at The Hartford in helping over 20 million Americans1 overcome challenges every day. And it’s why we’re proud to be a founding partner of U.S. Paralympics for over two decades and counting.
