Republic Bank’s Darien branch recently sponsored the Darien Dash. The Darien Dash is an annual fundraising event organized by the Darien Chamber of Commerce. With something for everyone, the dash included a 10K, 5K, 1 mile and Fun Run. Hundreds of runners participated on the various courses. A portion of the proceeds raised from the Dash benefits one local Darien school and one Darien 501c3 Charitable organization.

Republic Bank has participated in the race for years. “Darien is a great community. We were honored to once again be a part of an event that draws the community together and supports important causes, like our schools and the non-profits that help so many of our citizens,” noted Jozo Erkapic, Republic Bank’s Darien VP/Branch Sales Manager.

Republic Bank staff members were there to congratulate all the runners at the finish line. Runners were treated to refreshments, snacks and novelty items all provided by the bank.

The Darien branch has many other events and sponsorships planned throughout 2017.
