Since 1999 Robert Placak & the team at RCP Events has brought thousands of swimmers to the beautiful town of Tiburon for a world class, one of a kind Open Water Swim, The RCP Tiburon Mile. US and International Olympians, World Open Water Champions, Special Olympic athletes, US Master and US Swim teams, Collegiate teams and swim enthusiasts worldwide have all enjoyed the 1 nautical mile swim from Angel Island in San Francisco Bay to the shore of downtown Tiburon.
We are grateful to everyone that has participated, both on land and in the water. Our 200+ volunteers on an annual basis return to help organize and orchestrate this event beautifully and to each of them we extend our heartfelt thanks. We are proud that since 1999 we have raised $1,400,000 for charity.
As you may know, Robert C. Placak & Associates is and has been the title sponsor for this race. We put our heart and soul into bringing this event to life on an annual basis. As some of you may not know our business is providing Employee Benefit Consulting to companies worldwide. We put our heart and soul into this as well. With the passing of the Affordable Care Act (known to many as Obamacare) our industry is the midst of the greatest changes in health care since the implementation of Medicare. As with any change there is confusion, concern and lots and lots of questions.
We have decided that during 2014 we will focus 100% of our energy on our Employee Benefit business. Our clients need us; our energy, expertise and knowledge to help guide them through this complex maze.
We have made the tough decision to postpone the next RCP Tiburon Mile until 2015.
