UnitedHealthcare To Donate Coats At Valverde Elementary School


THIS IS NO SLEEPY DRIVE. ANDREA, THANKS FOR THE UPDATE. WE’LL CHECK BACK IN WITH YOU IN A FEW. AS WE COVER COLORADO FIRST THIS MORNING, EVENTUALLY THAT COOLER WEATHER THAT ASHTON IS TALKING ABOUT WILL MAKE ITS WAY TO COLORADO. BUT, REMEMBER, THERE ARE SOME FAMILIES WHO ARE STRUGGLING TO MAKE ENDS MEET. THEY’RE GETTING A NICE SURPRISE THIS MORNING, AND IT WILL LIKELY WARM THEIR HEARTS AND A LOT MORE. MEKIALAYA WHITE IS LIVE AT VALVERTEE ELEMENTARY IN DENVER WITH MORE. REPORTER: GOOD MORNING, BRITT. YES, THE UNITED HEALTHCARE IS DOING A GIVEAWAY HERE LATER TODAY. AND I’M JOINED BY GRANT WHO IS THE V.P. OF SALES FOR UNITED HEALTHCARE. GOOD MORNING, GRANT. GOOD MORNING. GOOD TO SEE YOU. REPORTER: THANK YOU FOR GETTING UP EARLY WITH US. TELL ME WHAT YOU GUYS ARE DOING AND WHY IT’S PROMOATZING HEALTH FOR KIDS TOO. WELL, 270 KIDS TODAY ARE GOING TO GET A BRAND NEW COAT AND IT ENCOURAGES HEALTH BY NOT GIVING THEM AN EXCUSE TO STAY INDOORS AND WATCH VIDEO GAMES AS OPPOSED TO GETTING OUTSIDE AND EXERCISING AND ENJOY THE OUTDOORS WHEN IT’S COOLER. REPORTER: IT’S A LITTLE CHILLY THIS MORNING, BUT, YOU KNOW, PERFECT DAY TO GIVE ALL THESE KIDS THIS MUCH NEEDED GIFT. YEAH. IT’S GOING TO BE A GREAT DAY. WE GOT VOLUNTEERS COMING ABOUT 10:00. JOHN JAMES FROM THE BRONCOS IS COMING OUT, WHICH WE’RE THRILLED THAT HE’S PART OF THIS EVENT. AND IT’S GOING TO BE A GREAT DAY FOR THE KIDS. IT’S MORE THAN JUST THE COATS. IT’S ABOUT ENCOURAGING HEALTH AND WELLNESS. YOU KNOW, WE TALKED EARLIER THAT IN COLORADO ALMOST 10% OF KIDS BETWEEN THE AGES OF 2 AND 19 ARE OBESE. NATIONALLY THAT STATISTIC IS ALMOST ONE IN THREE. SO ANYTHING THAT WE CAN DO, EVEN GIVING 270 COATS AND MAKE THOSE 270 KIDS HEALTHIER WE’LL, YOU KNOW, HOPEFULLY ADDRESS THE ISSUE. REPORTER: AND REALLY QUICKLY TOO, THIS IS — THIS ISN’T THE ONLY EVENT YOU GUYS DO THROUGHOUT THE YEAR. WE DO IT ALL OVER THE COUNTRY, PLAYGROUNDS IN SEATTLE, WE GAVE COATS IN ST. LOUIS, WE GIVE BIKES JUST BEFORE THE SUMMER STARTS TO ENCOURAGE KIDS ACROSS THE COUNTRY TO BE HEALTHY. REPORTER: THANK YOU SO MUCH, GRANT. YES, THIS IS ALL HAPPENING RIGHT HERE AT VALVERDE
