Group Health Participates in Healthy Kids Day at YMCAs

Group Health marked Healthy Kids Day on April 26 by handing out bike helmets at multiple YMCA locations throughout Washington state. Group Health also donated to eight other YMCAs for a total of 20 supported locations. More than 5,000 people attended events at which Group Health staff and members of Team Group Health, the Group Health-sponsored women’s bicycle team, fitted kids with helmets and handed out information about the importance of HPV vaccinations as part of the HPV Awareness Campaign.

Overall, more than 3,000 helmets were distributed, which leveraged the efforts of multiple teams including the Group Health Foundation, Group Health Research Institute and grants from Group Health’s Community Engagement and External Affairs department.
