The campaign created by In the Company of Huskies, celebrates moments of courage that have defined the lives of individuals and, in turn, inspired Irish society.

The ad stars Ireland’s youngest-ever Paralympic athlete, Ellen Keane. Born missing the lower part of her arm, Ellen wore long sleeves to conceal her impairment. It wasn’t until Ellen’s mid-teens that she found the courage to wear short sleeves. That simple moment of courage marked the beginning. There is no hiding in a swimsuit, and there was no hiding her ability either. Ellen has competed in three Paralympic Games and recently won a gold medal in the Allianz European Para Championships.

The campaign depicts true acts of courage by Irish people and helps reconnect customers to the idealistic roots of insurance - reminding them that Allianz is there to support them when they face both big and small choices that impact on their lives.

Allianz in Ireland is a longstanding supporter of Paralympics Ireland and their parent company, Allianz SE is a global sponsor of the International Paralympic Committee.
