United Healthcare gives MS grant for healthy kids
BELZONI, Miss. (AP) — A health care company has donated another $30,000 to help children in Mississippi stay healthy.
The donation came Saturday during a Mississippi 4-H club's Eat4-Health campaign event in Belzoni.
It was the second of four presentations scheduled by United Healthcare to promote fitness, nutrition and healthy living. The first was in Canton earlier this month.
Officials say in a news release that the program teaches children how healthy eating and exercise can prevent obesity.
United Healthcare's other community events will be later in Jackson and Clarksdale.
