Two Giants TDs Raise $1,200
**for the New Jersey YMCA State Alliance
The Giants might have fallen to the Indianapolis Colts in game two of the 2010-2011 season, but their scoring lifted the Touchdowns for Families program. The two touchdowns raised $1,200 for the New Jersey YMCA State Alliance and its Healthy U program for the 2010-2011 season.
Eli Manning threw touchdown passes to wide receivers Hakeem Nicks and Mario Manningham during an otherwise tough night in Indianapolis, where the Colts played like the defending conference champion team they are, winning 38-14.
The Giants (1-1) look to bounce back next Sunday at the New Meadowlands Stadium when they host the Tennessee Titans, who are also 1-1 on the young 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 two touchdowns scored this week, the Alliance raised $500 through Horizon and $700 through its Master Brokers, bringing the total raised through Week 2 to $3,600.
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."
