The initiative will give custom-fit mouth guards to 1,000 PIC Junior Rugby players aged 5-12 years, and six Auckland rugby clubs are taking part in the programme.
Commenting on the partnership, Hennin said that investing in injury and illness prevention is important in preventing both short- and long-term issues, and said the focus on prevention is a key part of nib’s direction.
“It’s been a tough year for everyone, and many sports clubs haven’t been able to train or play as planned,” Hennin said.
“As the new season kicks off, we wanted to give back and ensure that our junior players are protected by the best, so they can remain healthy both on and off the field.”
“Our partnerships are all about protecting New Zealanders against the risk of illness and disease, getting them access to healthcare, and helping them navigate the healthcare system,” he explained.
