UnitedHealthcare Kickball Team Looks Forward to the Next Tournament

  1. Updates

UnitedHealthcare Community Plan of WI had the opportunity to sponsor two teams in the Playworks Wisconsin 2019 Corporate Kickball Tournament. Corporate Kickball is an active employee engagement event that brings teams of 10-15 co-workers together through tournament play of a nostalgic game of kickball. Companies competed for a championship trophy and the opportunity to bring safe, healthy play to children in primarily low-income elementary schools across southeastern Wisconsin. It was a fun filled day playing opponents from other Wisconsin businesses.

What UnitedHealthcare lacked in athletic ability, we made up for in spirit, bringing home the spirit award for the day. The event included opportunities for networking; complimentary jerseys for all participants; lunch and adult beverages. The winning team received a trophy, plenty of high fives and bragging rights for an entire year. Employees of UnitedHealthcare are looking forward to participating in the event again when we are safely able to do so!

The next Wisconsin Corporate Kickball event is tentatively planned for the fall of 2021! Interested in fielding a team? Reach out and let us know: https://www.playworks.org/wisconsin/about/contact-us/
