SACRAMENTO, Calif.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–UnitedHealthcare delivered 150 NERF ENERGY Game Kits, a limited-release
game that tracks physical activity and rewards kids for being active, to
the Boys & Girls Clubs of Greater Sacramento this morning. The donation
is part of a recently launched national initiative featuring Hasbro’s
NERF products that encourages young people to become more active through
“exergaming.”


UnitedHealthcare will visit nearly a dozen Boys & Girls Clubs across the
country to demonstrate how to use the NERF ENERGY Game Kits throughout
the holiday season, a time when children tend to be more sedentary. In
addition to the Boys & Girls Clubs of Greater Sacramento,
UnitedHealthcare will donate more than 1,500 NERF ENERGY Game Kits to
Boys & Girls Clubs in California, Kansas, Massachusetts, Mississippi,
Nevada, Ohio, Texas and Washington.

The donations are part of a national rollout of the game to schools and
youth organizations. Throughout 2017, UnitedHealthcare will deliver a
total of 10,000 NERF ENERGY Game Kits to elementary schools and
community organizations across the country, enabling children ages six
to 12 to receive the kits at no cost.
