Project Sunshine provides enrichment proramming and hope to pediatric
patients and their families, and restores a crucial sense of normalcy to
the health care environment.
Project Sunshine and UnitedHealth Group began its partnership in early
2012. Since then, nearly 6,500 volunteers at UnitedHealth Group have
created 20,560 Arts and Crafts Kits, and 3,450 Sunny Grams for pediatric
patients across the country. These volunteers have also participated in
51 hospital-based events.
Since 2011, UnitedHealthcare and the Dallas Cowboys have raised
awareness of the benefits of healthy living and preventing chronic
diseases, especially childhood obesity and diabetes, through 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. Randle, Escobar, and Holloman are members of the 2013
Dallas Cowboys Rookie Club presented by UnitedHealthcare.
