Do Good. Live Well. reaches a milestone with our 300th project! 1

Completing our 300th project!

On Wednesday, July 18, the Do Good. Live Well. team reached a HUGE milestone with our 300th project in UnitedHealthcare’s own backyard – Minneapolis, Minnesota. UnitedHealthcare teamed up with the New England Revolution and Minneapolis Park & Recreation to host a free Youth Soccer Clinic at the beautiful Farview Park in North Minneapolis.

Since 2011, UnitedHealthcare and the New England Revolution have teamed up to provide community leadership in healthy living education. UnitedHealthcare is also the proud jersey sponsor of the Revolution. On July 18 the Revolution made their first visit to Minnesota to take on the Minnesota United Football Club. As part of this exciting partnership with the Revolution, Do Good. Live Well., along with the Revolution academy coaches hosted a free clinic in an underserved neighborhood in North Minneapolis.

Over 100 children, aged 5-15, had the opportunity to learn more about the sport of soccer and participate in a physical activity – an experience they might not have access to normally. The kids were excited to learn we had a special guest, New England Revolution alumni, Charlie Davies. Each kid had the opportunity to interact with Davies, as well as get his autograph! Davies was a wonderful addition to our day!

As with many of our projects, our volunteers’ hearts were warmed by the opportunity to be a part of this project in Minneapolis. They witnessed the excitement each kid had at the opportunity to PLAY – something that many of us take for granted. I, for one, was touched by every smile I saw that day. The ear-to-ear grin on those faces was a reminder to me that each of these projects – all 300 of them! – is so important to the communities where UnitedHealthcare’s employees live and work.
