UnitedHealthcare Donates Hasbro’s NERF Energy Game Kits to Boys & Girls Clubs of the Austin Area

Members of Boys & Girls Clubs of the Austin Area were led through exercises with UnitedHealthcare mascot, Dr. Health E. Hound, to test their new NERF ENERGY Game Kit that tracks activity earning “energy points” in order to play the game.

As part of an initiative to reduce youth obesity, UnitedHealthcare and Hasbro recently donated 100 NERF ENERGY Game Kits to Boys & Girls Clubs of the Austin Area.

Each kit includes a NERF Energy Game Band, a NERF PRO FOAM soccer ball and instructions to download the NERF ENERGY RUSH mobile game to get kids moving. As children participate in physical activity, they earn “energy points” that are tracked by the activity band, and these points turn into screen time to play the mobile game on a smartphone or tablet.

UnitedHealthcare is donating 10,000 NERF Energy Game Kits to elementary schools and community organizations across the country.

Marian Cabanillas, President of UnitedHealthcare Community Plan of South Texas, distributed kits to children.
