This past fall, University of Utah Health Plans promoted our Active U Sports Scholarship program for the third round. For the first two rounds in Fall 2016 and Spring 2017, the program was advertised in the Murray City School District. Then we extended Active U to the High Schools in Davis School District because of the great success of the program! This program gives students ages 8-18 the chance to win $250 towards an organized sports program of their choice. For fall 2017, four students from Davis High Schools were awarded Active U Sports Scholarships and three students in Murray School District.
University of Utah Health Plans believes it is important for our youth to be active and healthy and appreciates the opportunity to give back to our communities.
We are grateful for the support of the schools and community partners!
