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 is teaming up with KaBOOM! to build our 29th playground together. This build will take place at Global Academy in New Brighton. Global Academy is a K-8 International Baccalaureate free public charter school. The school is currently located in a strip mall, but will be moving to a new campus this summer. Right now, the new school doesn't have a playground, but we're going to change that. More than 200 volunteers from the community build 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.
