Bears Quarterback Jay Cutler and Eli Lilly and Company Will Send 44 Kids to American Diabetes Association Camps Through the Touchdowns for Diabetes Campaign
Date:12/11/2009

CHICAGO, Dec. 11 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Chicago Bears' quarterback Jay Cutler and Eli Lilly and Company (Lilly) have already helped send 44 children to American Diabetes Association diabetes camps next summer - with four games left in the NFL season.

Through the Touchdowns for Diabetes campaign, Lilly donates money to the American Diabetes Association's (ADA) camp scholarship fund for each of Cutler's touchdowns and pass completions in the 2009 season - $1,000 per touchdown (roughly the cost to send one child to diabetes camp for an entire week) and $100 per completion. Visit www.touchdownsfordiabetes.com for more information.

Through 12 games of this NFL season, Cutler has thrown 17 touchdowns, run for one touchdown and completed 261 passes, for a running total of 44 scholarships. Lilly will make a final donation to the ADA next year based on Cutler's full season performance.

Lilly, Cutler and the ADA announced the partnership at the start of the NFL season in September. The ADA is the largest provider of diabetes camps in the world and is serving as the national champion for Touchdowns for Diabetes. Lilly has a long history of supporting diabetes camps, including more than $2 million in product donations to camps in the United States in 2009.

Cutler today also released the next episode of his Web video series - called "Jay Cutler's Journey with Diabetes." The videos detail Cutler's life with diabetes on and off the field and are available on touchdownsfordiabetes.com, jaycutlersix.com and the multimedia section of chicagobears.com.

Since learning he had type 1 diabetes after his second season in the NFL, Cutler has worked to help inspire children with diabetes to achieve their goals - and let them see that diabetes doesn't have to stop them from being who they want to be.
