Two Local Fundraisers Raise More Than $2 Million to Help Families Pay for Children’s Medical Expenses

MINNETONKA, Minn.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–The UnitedHealthcare Children’s Foundation (UHCCF) held two fundraisers
this week that raised $2.2 million to help families pay for child
medical expenses.


On Sunday, UHCCF’s fifth-annual MN Century Ride kicked off at 7 a.m.
when 97 riders began a 100-mile ride through the western suburbs of Eden
Prairie, Minnetonka and Delano.

Following the ride, golfers from Minnesota and around the country
gathered Monday at the UHCCF Hazeltine Golf Classic fundraiser in Chaska

insurance plan. Families can receive up to $5,000 annually per child
($10,000 lifetime maximum per child), and do not need to have insurance

families across the United States.
