Project Sunshine provides enrichment proramming and hope to pediatric patients and their families, and restores a crucial sense of normalcy to the health care environment.


Project Sunshine and UnitedHealth Group began its partnership in early 2012. Since then, nearly 6,500 volunteers at UnitedHealth Group have created 20,560 Arts and Crafts Kits, and 3,450 Sunny Grams for pediatric patients across the country. These volunteers have also participated in 51 hospital-based events.

Since 2011, UnitedHealthcare and the Dallas Cowboys have raised awareness of the benefits of healthy living and preventing chronic diseases, especially childhood obesity and diabetes, through the Dallas Cowboys Rookie Club, an annual outreach initiative designed to introduce the team's newest members to the importance of giving back to the North Texas community. Randle, Escobar, and Holloman are members of the 2013 Dallas Cowboys Rookie Club presented by UnitedHealthcare.
