CVS Health Patriots Football Skills Clinic for Veterans

11.25.16

In November, CVS Health invited 30 of our nation’s military veterans from Massachusetts and Rhode Island to Gillette Stadium for the chance of a lifetime: to join members of the New England Patriots on the field for the Football Skills Camp for Veterans.

The veterans spent the day receiving skills training from Patriots alumni including blocking, throwing and tackling. To help the day run smoothly, members of VALOR, the CVS Health Colleague Resource group dedicated to supporting active military members and veterans, were also on hand. Watch our video to see highlights from the event.
