New England PatriotsThe new play space will give the more than 250 students a place to engage in safe and healthy activities. Earlier in the summer, Bridge Boston students and staff helped design the new 2,400-square-foot playground during a special “design day” event, incorporating new elements such as a slither slide, cliff hanger and timber trail bridge.“We were excited to team with UnitedHealthcare to turn this dream of a new playground into a reality for the Bridge Boston Charter School,” said Josh Kraft, president, New England Patriots Foundation. “We know the value of physical activity and exercise, particularly for children, and that this new space will give students a place to play for years to come.”The Bridge Boston Charter School, designed to serve as a school and community hub for Bridge Boston families, opened its new campus in August.“The new playground affirms our commitment to nurture the whole child at Bridge Boston Charter School,” said Yully Cha, executive director, Bridge Boston Charter School. “From design day to build day, the excitement around this project is energizing for our growing school and community family.” “UnitedHealthcare is grateful for the opportunity to help build a playground that will give children at the Bridge Boston Charter School a place to play and exercise outdoors with their friends and families, while creating healthy habits that will last a lifetime,” said Stephen Farrell, CEO, UnitedHealthcare of New England.Volunteers worked with KaBOOM!, a national nonprofit organization that helps bring balanced and active play into children’s daily lives. The Boston playground is the 2,974th KaBOOM!-organized build since 1996, the 24th created by KaBOOM! and UnitedHealthcare and the 8th built with the Patriots.This playground build is part of UnitedHealthcare’s “Do Good. Live Well.” program, an employee-volunteer initiative dedicated to decreasing hunger and obesity, inspiring service and encouraging volunteerism.For more information about the benefits of volunteering and to find opportunities to volunteer alongside UnitedHealthcare in your community, visit DoGoodLiveWell.org.

Founded in 2011, Bridge Boston Charter School is a tuition-free, public charter school which aims to impact the education, health and social-emotional wellbeing of children in some of Boston’s most underserved neighborhoods. The school currently serves 272 students in pre-K through 5th grade, with plans to grow by a grade annually to serve a total of 335 pre-K through 8th graders. Bridge Boston believes that the most effective way to lift children out of poverty is by equipping them with an excellent education. As such, the school offers a longer day from 8:00 a.m. – 5:00 p.m. and school year from August – June, and provides academic rigor, a commitment to nurturing the whole child and a breadth of full-service programming to remove obstacles to learning.
