Instant Playground: New England Patriots Players Help Build a Playground


ALL IT TAKES ARE WILLING HANDS AS HUNDREDS OF VOLUNTEERS BUILD A PLAYGROUND AT A FOXBORO SCHOOL IN A MATTER OF HOURS WITH SOME HELP FROM THE PATRIOTS AND FOR THE FIRST TIME, THOSE ELEMENTARY SCHOOL KIDS HAVE A PLACE TO PLAY. IT’S PART OF A PROJECT TO HELP YOUNG PEOPLE STAY FIT. Reporter: THEY MIXED CEMENT, THE MOUNTAIN OF MULCH AND DID HEAVY LIFTING FOR A GOOD CAUSE, GIVING KIDS A SAFE PLACE TO PLAY AND A WAY TO STAY ACTIVE AND DOING IT ALL IN A DAY. WE STARTED AT 7 AM AND WE ARE HERE TILL ABOUT PROBABLY 4 O’CLOCK IN THE AFTERNOON. Reporter: THE INSTANT PLAYGROUND IS A JOINT PROJECT BETWEEN UNITED HEALTHCARE, A NONPROFIT CALLED KABOOM AND THE NEW ENGLAND PATRIOTS. AT THE FOXBORO REGION’S CHARTER SCHOOL. WE WILL FINISH IT UP. WE WILL IMPROVISE. Reporter: IT WAS ABOUT 200 VOLUNTEERS FROM UNITED HEALTHCARE AND THE COMMUNITY THAT REALLY GOT IT DONE. IS PART OF THE HEALTHCARE COMPANY, WERE PEOPLE HELPING PEOPLE LIVE HEALTHIER LIVES IN THIS IS A CHANCE TO DO THIS IN A DIFFERENT WAY WE NORMALLY DO. Reporter: FOR THE FIRST TIME THE ELEMENTARY SCHOOL HERE WILL HAVE A PLAYGROUND. THIS IS A BIG DEAL FOR US, WE’VE BEEN WAITING FOR A COUPLE OF YEARS TO GET A PLAYGROUND DOWN HERE AT OUR NEW ELEMENTARY SCHOOL BUILDING. I THINK PLAY IS IMPORTANT FOR THE KIDS AND THIS IS A GOOD VOLUNTEER OPPORTUNITY. Reporter: AT THE END OF THE DAY, THE ENTIRE COMMUNITY WAS RICHER FOR THE GOOD WORK DONE HERE. THIS IS THE BEST THING I’VE DONE ALL YEAR. THIS IS THE 10th YEAR IN A ROW THE PATRIOTS HAVE JOINED THE PLAYGROUND BUILDING EFFORT WHICH IS PART OF THE UNITED HEALTHCARE DO GOOD, LIVE WELL CAMPAIGN. DID THE TEAM GET THE DAY OFF FROM PRACTICE? THEY DO THIS ON THEIR DAY OFF. AND ALL OF THE VOLUNTEERS MUST’VE BEEN SO THRILLED TO BUILD ALONG WITH THEM.
