Jonas Brothers' Change for the Children Foundation to Provide Diabetes Camp Scholarships

TARRYTOWN, N.Y., Feb. 25 /PRNewswire/ -- Today, Nick Jonas announced that Change for the Children, a charitable foundation started by the Jonas Brothers band, will provide $25,000 in scholarships to send underprivileged children with diabetes to diabetes camps.

Nick, 16, who has had type 1 diabetes for over three years, shared the news of the scholarships at a Bayer employee meeting. The funds are made possible by a Bayer Diabetes Care unrestricted grant to the Change for the Children Foundation.

"I'm impressed by what my partnership with Bayer has accomplished to raise awareness of pediatric diabetes, and thankful for this platform which has allowed me to connect with many of my fans on a much stronger and more personal level," said Nick Jonas. "My brothers and I are grateful to Bayer for their generous contributions to our foundation."

"Nick has been a wonderful partner and we're happy to support his efforts to raise funds through the Jonas Brothers' Change for the Children Foundation," said Nancy Katz, head of North America for Bayer Diabetes Care.

As part of its ongoing support of Nick, Bayer hosted a fun-run at the meeting during which Bayer employees raised an additional $10,000 to be donated to The Change for the Children Foundation.

The Change for the Children Foundation is a Jonas Brothers organization that provides support to charitable programs that motivate and inspire children to face adversity with confidence, determination and a will to succeed.

Last year, Bayer and Nick Jonas announced their partnership to provide young people and their families with the motivation and support they need to help simplify life with diabetes. Together with Bayer, Nick is inspiring other young people with diabetes to achieve Simple Wins: small, everyday victories for managing the disease that can lead to big differences over time.

As part of their partnership, Bayer and Nick are offering limited edition "dog tags" as a symbol of support for people with diabetes. The dog tags feature a lyric from "A Little Bit Longer," the song Nick wrote about his diabetes.
