What can you do to protect your family from the flu virus?


Kids touch and play with everything so their chance of getting the flu is higher than an adult’s.  Keep your family safe by reminding everyone to wash their hands, or use an alcohol based hand sanitizer.  You can also use a regular household disinfectant to wipe down surfaces everyday.  Pay particular attention to counter tops, kids’ toys, computer key boards and phones, along with door knobs.  So remember to stay safe and Give Health a Hand with UnitedHealthcare.

UnitedHealthcare can help you make smart decisions about your health and provide you with tools to help you get and stay healthy. Click Here

The Arthritis Foundation’s Jingle Bell Run/Walk for Arthritis raises awareness of arthritis, the nation’s leading cause of disability.

The 23rd Annual Jingle Bell Run/Walk is a Denver Holiday Tradition. Jingle bells are provided for participants to tie to their shoelaces and a holiday themed costume contest brings out the Santa and Mrs. Claus in all of us! Dogs in costume are also welcome. There is a kid’s fun run, and a “Snowman Scramble” where the kids chase Frosty for fun prizes. The event’s top racers and best costumes will medals or prizes.

One of the greatest and easiest ways to spread some holiday cheer to people in need is through our Holidays for Kids event. This December, Concerts For Kids will bring joy to more than 2,100 children in the greater Denver area thanks to the generous support of our donors, sponsors and volunteers. Children will participate in face painting, balloon artistry, cookie decorating, carolers and at the end of the day, will meet Santa and take home a backpack full of books and presents. In 2013, Concerts For Kids distributed nearly 25,000 gifts and projects the same for 2014. Please contact Victoria at 303-605-2885 or victoria.francis@concertsforkids.org to sign up for gift wrapping and event day volunteer slots
