On April 3, UnitedHealthcare—in partnership with the Cal Ripken, Sr. Foundation and CBS EcoMedia—unveiled a new outdoor basketball court, walking path, freshly painted picnic tables and other enhancements at the SpringSpirit Youth Sports and Education Complex in Houston.

Area youth also participated in a sports and fitness day and basketball skills competition as part of the Team8 Tour, a national campaign encouraging young people to make healthy choices, build character and be catalysts for positive social change.

NBA veteran Danny Granger led the basketball skills competition, and more than 75 volunteers from UnitedHealthcare, the Ripken Foundation and CBS EcoMedia assisted with the upgrades and activities.

Also as part of the Team8 Tour in Houston, representatives from the three organizations visited the Langham Creek YMCA and Langham Creek High School to donate sports equipment and present the Uncommon Athlete program, which aims to motivate and empower young athletes to be leaders, both on and off the field.
