Part of a national initiative between Hasbro and UnitedHealthcare to
encourage kids to increase physical activity, the kits feature Hasbro’s
NERF products that are designed to encourage young people to become more
active through “exergaming.”
Each kit includes a NERF ENERGY Game Band, a NERF PRO FOAM soccer ball
and instructions to download the NERF ENERGY RUSH mobile game to get
kids moving. 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.
UnitedHealthcare is donating 10,000 NERF ENERGY Game Kits to elementary
schools and community organizations across the country, enabling
children ages six to 12 to receive the kits at no cost.
