Touchdowns for Families Program:
For every touchdown the New York Giants score, Horizon BCBSNJ will donate $250.00 to the New Jersey YMCA State Alliance. The Alliance will use that money to expand its "Healthy U" initiative, which is the nation's largest after school childhood obesity prevention and education program. New this year, Horizon BCBSNJ invited its Master Broker companies to participate as well, and 12 have generously pledged an additional $25.00 per touchdown to the New Jersey YMCA State Alliance. With the four touchdowns scored this week, the Alliance raised $1,000 through Horizon and $1,400 through its Master Brokers, bringing the total raised through Week 13 to $22,200. Tight End Kevin Boss is the Official Spokesperson for the Touchdowns for Families Program this season.
If the New York Giants make the NFL post season, Horizon BCBSNJ will increase its donation to $500.00 for each touchdown that the Giants score in each playoff game. If the Giants make the championship game Horizon BCBSNJ will increase its donation to $1,000.00 for each touchdown the Giants score.
