Rhode Island’s Elisabeth Hickox of Independence Financial Partners Honored for Charitable Work with Young Survival Coalition

Newport, RI– July 17, 2017 – Elisabeth Hickox, volunteer for Young Survival Coalition (YSC) in Rhode Island received Honorable Mention for philanthropic excellence in the eleventh annual Invest in Others Awards.

The Invest in Others Charitable Foundation established its awards program to recognize the charitable work of financial advisors and financial services firms in communities across the country and around the world.

Financial advisors are nominated by their peers for actively giving back to non-profits to improve their communities and make a difference in the lives of others.  Hundreds of inspirational nominations for the Invest in Others Awards were received this year and reviewed by a diverse panel of leaders in the financial services industry. Those earning Honorable Mention were selected based on their leadership, dedication, contribution, inspiration, and impact on a non-profit and the community it serves.

Now in her 4th year of volunteer work with YSC, Liz participates annually in a 200+ mile bike ride to raise awareness and support for young women battling breast cancer. This year’s 211.5 mile ride covers 7225 vertical feet from the Philadelphia suburbs to the beaches of Long Branch, NJ from October 6th-8th. This 3 day ride is not a race, but a celebration of loved ones lost, support for those currently fighting breast cancer, and survivors. 1/3 of the women participating are survivors or are currently receiving treatment for breast cancer. Starting out as a solo volunteer, she has since founded and supports a team of 17 riders and together has raised over $44,000 for YSC; offering young women the direct and immediate support they need to battle the deadly disease.

The eleventh annual Invest in Others Awards Gala, a premier event attended by over 500 financial advisors and financial services executives, is September 28, 2017 in New York City. Awards will be presented in the following categories: Catalyst, Community Service, Global Community Impact, Volunteer of the Year, Lifetime Achievement, and Corporate Philanthropy.
