Children need to be physically active to help them stay healthy. Blue Cross and Blue Shield of New Mexico (BCBSNM) also knows that children need a safe place to play to help them stay active. That is why we have partnered with KaBOOM for four years to build playgrounds around New Mexico to encourage children to have fun and PLAY!
This year, we partnered with New Life Homes to help build a playground at the Sundowner Apartments in Albuquerque. New Life Homes serves the most vulnerable individuals in Albuquerque, including families and individuals who have struggled with homelessness, mental and chronic health issues, and other physical disabilities.
More than 60 BCBSNM employees and their families worked alongside community volunteers and the residents of Sundowner to build a brand new playground in just six short hours this fall. The playground included swings, climbing walls, slides, picnic tables with shade structures and teeter totters.
Check out our video to see volunteers and the smiles on the faces of children at Sundowner Apartments. It will put a smile on your face too!
