Playground Build in New Brighton, Minn.

Global Academy
As part of our ongoing effort to Build Healthier Communities by decreasing hunger and obesity and increasing physical activity, UnitedHealthcare's "Do Good. Live Well." employee volunteer initiative teamed up with KaBOOM! to build our 29th playground together. This build took place at Global Academy in New Brighton. Global Academy is a K-8 International Baccalaureate free public charter school. The school used to be located in a strip mall, but is moving to a new campus this summer. Previously, the new school didn't have a playground. More than 200 volunteers from the community built an engaging and safe play space at Global that will help enhance their students' health a well-being. Nearly 500 children will have the opportunity to use this new playground annually.
