N.H. Healthy Families partners with Fisher Cats

BEDFORD — New Hampshire Healthy Families, a Granite State-based health plan serving members in the state Medicaid program, continued its support of the Base Hits for Kids program through a partnership with the New Hampshire Fisher Cats baseball team.

New Hampshire Healthy Families committed to financial support for every base hit by a Fisher Cats player during a home game.

The program ran throughout the 2019 season and concluded with a celebration during the Aug. 16 home game. Nearly 250 Boys & Girls Club members and their families attended the game with tickets and a food voucher courtesy of the organization.

President and CEO Jennifer Weigand was on-hand to present a check for $10,000 to the Boys & Girls Clubs of New Hampshire.

“We are so grateful for the continued support of New Hampshire Healthy Families for its generous contribution to the Boys & Girls Clubs of New Hampshire,” Boys & Girls Club of Manchester CEO Diane Fitzpatrick said. “Our members and their families look forward to this exciting event every year.”

Additionally, Broose the Moose was introduced at the game as the organization’s new mascot and the ambassador for the Healthy Kids Club. The Healthy Kids Club, to launch Sept. 1, is an educational program for children 12 and under. After signing up, members receive a membership card along with educational items, resources and special invitations to events — exclusive to club members.

“We are pleased to continue our partnership with the Fisher Cats in support of the Boys & Girls Clubs across New Hampshire for the third year in a row,” Weigand added. “Base Hits for Kids is one of our signature community partnerships and it’s great to have everyone enjoy an evening at the ballpark each season.”

“New Hampshire Healthy Families has become synonymous with Base Hits for Kids, and we’re proud to be a part of their efforts to raise funds for the Boys & Girls Club,” Fisher Cats President Mike Ramshaw said. “We look forward to continuing this strong partnership well into the future, as the Fisher Cats keep adding to that hit total.”
