Team8 Tour a wrap!

Team8 Tour is a wrap!

The Cal Ripken, Sr. Foundation, UnitedHealthcare and CBS EcoMedia successfully wrapped up the Team8 Tour, a campaign aimed at encouraging young people across the country to make healthy choices, build character and learn critical life lessons that will inspire them to be catalysts for positive social change.

The tour visited eight cities across the country this year partnering with community-based organizations to implement the Cal Ripken, Sr. Foundation’s Healthy Choices, Healthy Children programming which allows kids to learn vital life lessons that help them lead a positive, productive and healthy lifestyle through sports and physical activities. Also, the Team8 Tour, in recognizing the unique status of student athletes as leaders among their peers, presented the Cal Ripken, Sr. Foundation’s Uncommon Athlete program to a high school in each city. The Uncommon Athlete program aims to motivate and empower young athletes to be positive teammates, on and off the field.

The tour kicked off in Houston in March and made its way to Charlotte, Raleigh, Chicago, Jersey City, New York City, Los Angeles and Denver, wrapping up in October.
