Horizon Blue Cross Blue Shield of New Jersey Tees Up Charity, Health and Wellness at The Barclays
Date:8/21/2013

(PRWEB) August 21, 2013

Horizon Blue Cross Blue Shield of New Jersey is driving home health and wellness to golf fans at The Barclays with a challenge to golf pro and Wyckoff native, Morgan Hoffman, as he plays in this week’s tournament. For every 10,000 steps Hoffman registers on a pedometer as he walks Liberty National this week, Horizon BCBSNJ will add another $1,000 to a $5,000 donation it is also making to the New Jersey Golf Foundation.

As an official sponsor of The Barclays golf tournament, Horizon BCBSNJ today welcomed Hoffman to its Health and Wellness Center, located on the driving range near #4 Green. Golf fans who enter the tent will find a series of interactive stations for BMI readings, vision screenings and even mixing their own healthy smoothie on a specially designed blending bike. While visiting the center, Hoffman also helped The Horizon Foundation for New Jersey present a $5,000 check to the New Jersey Golf Foundation, which brings the game of golf to underserved youths while also promoting health and wellness among children.

“Horizon is at The Barclays to promote health and wellness for golf fans, and we’re thrilled to have Morgan help us spread this important message,” said Jonathan R. Pearson, Executive Director of The Horizon Foundation for New Jersey. “Horizon’s contribution will help the New Jersey Golf Foundation reach more children and promote a healthy lifestyle, and this support will grow since Morgan Hoffman has accepted our pedometer challenge.”

As Hoffman plays each round during the tournament, Horizon will donate an additional $1,000 for each 10,000 steps he takes. All proceeds will go to the New Jersey Golf Foundation.

Many of the children who benefit from the charitable work of the New Jersey Golf Foundation met up with Hoffman at the Horizon Health and Wellness Center. Hoffman offered them golfing tips and answered some questions as he prepares for the firs
