Touchdowns for Families
**Two TDs in Giants' Win Raise $1,200 More for the New Jersey YMCA State Alliance; 2010 Season Total Now $5,400
Ahmad Bradshaw ran for one touchdown and Brandon Jacobs barreled in for another as the Giants defeated the Chicago Bears in Week 4 of the 2010 season, 17-3.
With the running game rolling up 189 yards and a stifling defense that recorded ten sacks, the Giants led from the opening quarter and never looked back.
With two touchdowns scored, $1,200 was raised through the Touchdowns for Program, which benefits the New Jersey YMCA State Alliance and its Healthy U program.
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" 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 two touchdowns scored this week, the Alliance raised $500 through Horizon and $700 through its Master Brokers, bringing the total raised through Week 4 to $5,400. Tight End Kevin Boss is the Official Spokesperson for the Touchdow ns 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.

Through four complete seasons, the Touchdowns for Families program raised $69,000 for charity. You can follow the weekly progress of the Touchdowns for Families program at www.Giants.com/community or on Facebook by searching "Horizon Blue Cross Blue Shield of New Jersey."
