UnitedHealthcare and Qualcomm Incorporated (NASDAQ: QCOM), through its wholly owned subsidiary Qualcomm Life, Inc., donated $50,000 to the Boys & Girls Clubs of America.

 

The donation, which will be shared by the Boys & Girls Clubs of Southern Nevada and the nonprofit’s national organization, is the culmination of a fundraiser that was held during the International Consumer Electronics Show (CES) 2017. UnitedHealthcare and Qualcomm gave away 500 activity trackers to CES attendees, encouraging participants to each walk 10,000 steps on Saturday, Jan. 7, for a combined total goal of 5 million steps; participants collectively walked 6.5 million steps as part of the challenge.

 

Yesterday, Tuesday, Jan. 10 at the Lied Memorial Clubhouse in Las Vegas, the two companies presented a $50,000 check to Andy Bischel, president & CEO of Boys & Girls Clubs of Southern Nevada.

 

UnitedHealthcare also donated 200 NERF Energy Game Kits, a limited-release game that tracks physical activity and rewards kids for being active. As children participate in physical activity, they earn “energy points” that are tracked by the activity band, and these points turn into screen time to play the mobile game on a smartphone or tablet. The Nerf Energy RUSH mobile game is an “endless runner” game that requires players to turn, jump and avoid obstacles to complete courses and earn power-ups to continue playing.

 

The donation is part of a recently launched national initiative featuring Hasbro’s NERF products that encourages young people to become more active through “exergaming.” UnitedHealthcare is donating 10,000 NERF ENERGY Game Kits to elementary schools and youth-focused organizations across the country, enabling children ages six to 12 to receive the kits at no cost.

 

“This generous donation from UnitedHealthcare and Qualcomm will help us improve the lives of young people in Nevada by encouraging healthy living, good nutrition and regular physical activity,” said Bischel. “We believe these new NERF ENERGY Game Kits will help young people in our community learn that exercise can be fun.”

 

Studies indicate that “exergaming” has the potential to reduce the growing obesity epidemic among children and adults. A study by George Washington University found exergames “spurred students to move enough to meet the recommended intensity criteria for vigorous activity,” and that these games are “a useful alternative to traditional physical education.”

Boys & Girls Clubs of Southern Nevada Receives nearly $13,000 for its College
Readiness Program from Toyota Financial Services, A
DESA, Manheim, DAA Northwest and Norwalk Auto Auctions

Donation is part of larger $500,000 contribution to 35 Clubs across the country

Toyota Financial Services (TFS) has partnered with four auto remarketing firms, ADESA (www.adesa.com), Manheim (www.manheim.com), DAA Northwest (www.daanorthwest.com), and Norwalk Auto Auctions (www.norwalkautoauction.com), to provide a donation of $12,857 to Boys & Girls Clubs of Southern Nevada. This is part of a larger contribution of $500,000 from Toyota Financial Services to Boys & Girls Clubs of America that will be divided equally among 35 Boys & Girls Clubs across the country currently running Diplomas to Degrees (d2D), the organization’s college readiness program.

Launched in 2012, d2D is a program supported by Toyota that provides tools, resources, and training for thousands of Club teens to help prepare them to successfully transition from high school to college graduation.

“Our partnership with Toyota allows us to continue combating the high school dropout crisis locally and prepare our teens for successful futures in college,” said Ken Rubeli, President/CEO of the Boys & Girls Clubs of Southern Nevada. “But the support doesn’t stop there, from Toyota employees volunteering as mentors, to the tremendous fundraising collaboration with the remarketing firms; we appreciate Toyota’s commitment to impacting the lives of our nation’s youth.”

The funding provided will help Boys & Girls Clubs of Southern Nevada maintain its commitment to academic success for all Club members with programs that help youth continue to learn over the summer, introduce them to college-going experiences, facilitate exposure to diverse career opportunities and increase their proficiency in technology.

“At Toyota, we value the long standing partnership with the BGCSNV James Clubhouse. The d2D program has provided our Toyota associates the opportunity to participate in engaging curriculum and mentoring college-bound teens. We look forward to continuing to watch and support these teens in their quest for post-secondary educational opportunities” says Mike Owens, President & CEO Toyota Financial Savings Bank.

For every vehicle purchased from Nov. 1- Dec. 2, 2013, TFS pledged a $50 donation and the four participating remarketing firms pledged an additional $15 to $25 per vehicle.  This marks the third consecutive year TFS and its auction partners have joined together to raise funds for Boys & Girls Clubs of America.  Last year, 19 Clubs shared donations totaling $464,425.

Boys & Girls Clubs of Southern Nevada will celebrate the donation received from TFS on March 12, 2014, from 3:30pm -5:00pm at the James Clubhouse (2530 E. Carey Ave., North Las Vegas 89030) with a check presentation event with participation by local TFS employees and Boys & Girls Clubs youth.
