The company will provide complimentary entry fees for the race to local community organizations, enabling youth who often face barriers to good health, to compete in a running event.

UnitedHealthcare’s mascot, Dr. Health E. Hound, along with community supporters and families, will cheer the kids on as they “compete” for healthy living.
