Initiative part of UnitedHealthcare’s program to help reduce youth
obesity through “exergaming”
PHILADELPHIA–(BUSINESS WIRE)–UnitedHealthcare delivered more than 150 NERF ENERGY Game Kits to third-
and fourth-grade students at Southwark School today. Each kit included
an activity tracker, NERF soccer ball and mobile game to get kids
moving. As children participated in physical activities, the activity
band awarded “energy points” that translated into earning screen time to
play the mobile game.
The donation is part of a national initiative between Hasbro and
UnitedHealthcare, featuring Hasbro’s NERF products, that encourages
young people to become more active through “exergaming.”
Throughout 2017, UnitedHealthcare will donate a total of 10,000 NERF
ENERGY Game Kits to elementary schools and community organizations
across the country.
