Molina donation helps Boys & Girls Clubs to purchase health programs

Stephen Harris, president of Molina Healthcare of Wisconsin and Dr. Cleo, Molina Healthcare’s cat doctor mascot, hold up the check donation with some of the students from the Boys and Girls Clubs.

Molina Healthcare of Wisconsin donation of $5,000 supported the Boys and Girls Clubs of Greater Milwaukee’s Health & Life Skills Programs which encourages a variety of healthy practices. In addition to the grant, Molina donated an Xbox Kinect, an interactive sport and exercise video game that requires physical engagement, to the Roger & Leona Fitzsimonds Boys and Girls Club.

“A critical part of helping our Boys & Girls Club members reach their full potential is introducing healthy habits to them early in life,” says Vincent P. Lyles, president & CEO of Boys & Girls Clubs of Greater Milwaukee. “This gift from Molina Healthcare will extend our ability to teach our members about how to make healthy choices for their minds, bodies and relationships. We also look forward to working with Molina Healthcare and its “Dr. Cleo” wellness education program at several of our Boys & Girls Club locations.”

Boys & Girls Clubs of Greater Milwaukee is the largest and oldest youth serving organization in the city with 38 locations serving more than 35,000 youth and teens. Trained youth development professionals provide guidance and support to Club members.
