Giants' Defeat Cowboys; Raise $3,000 more for the New Jersey YMCA State Alliance and Healthy U
Eli Manning tossed four touchdown passes and Brandon Jacobs carried for another as the Giants downed the Dallas Cowboys by a score of 41-35 in a Monday Night match-up.
After a slow start in which the Giants trailed Dallas in Arlington Texas by 20-7 in the second quarter, the G-men came charging back to secure a key conference victory. The Giants improved to 5-2 on the season – good enough to enter a bye week next week in sole possession of first place in the conference.
With five touchdowns scored, $3,000 was raised in Week Seven of the 2010-11 season through the Touchdowns for Program, which benefits the New Jersey YMCA State Alliance and its Healthy U program. The Touchdowns for Families Program has now raised more than $13,000 through the first seven weeks of the season.
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 five touchdowns scored this week, the Alliance raised $1,250 through Horizon and $1,750 through its Master Brokers, bringing the total raised through Week Seven to $13,200. 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.

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."
