Dallas Cowboys Rookie Club Visit Patients at Children’s Medical Center
May 31, 2012
The Dallas Cowboys teamed up with UnitedHealthcare (UHC) to present the 2012 season of the Dallas Cowboys Rookie Club – an annual outreach initiative designed to introduce the team’s newest members to the importance of giving back to the North Texas community.
For their third community outing of the 2012 off season, the Dallas Cowboys Rookie Club visited with patients at Children’s Medical Center for a special presentation and activities. On behalf of UHC, the Rookies presented a donation of four Strider Bikes to the hospital. The Rookies also spent time coloring, trying their hand at yo-yo’s and just “hanging out” with patients.
The Dallas Cowboys Rookie Club is also helping UnitedHealthcare to kick off the 2012 UnitedHealthcare Children’s Foundation grant season. Families in need of financial assistance can get help to pay for their child’s health care treatments, services or equipment not covered, or not fully covered, by their commercial health insurance plan.
