WEBWIRE – Friday, December 28, 2012

PHOENIX, – Cigna HealthCare of Arizona celebrated the final Arizona Cardinals’ home game of the season with a $10,000 donation to the Cardinals Charities “Kick for Kids” program, this year benefitting Phoenix Children’s Hospital.

This was the third season Cigna partnered with the Cardinals to donate money to “Kick for Kids” to benefit a local charity. For every field goal the Cardinals make during the season, Cigna contributes to Cardinals Charities, up to a total of $10,000. Cigna presented Phoenix Children’s Hospital with a check during the game last Sunday.

“We are proud to be a part of the “Kick for Kids” program and to help promote the health and well-being of children in Phoenix,” said Stephanie Gorman, president and general manager for Cigna in Arizona. “Phoenix Children’s Hospital provides quality medical services to our customers and to members of the community and we share a common goal of helping all of our kids to grow up healthy and strong.”

Cigna has participated in the “Kick for Kids” program for three consecutive years contributing a total of $30,000. Area organizations focused on child wellness that have been supported through Cigna’s past donations include the Boys & Girls Clubs of Metropolitan Phoenix and the Muscular Dystrophy Association. Child wellness is a key focus area of Cigna’s corporate responsibility platform, Cigna Connects, through which Cigna is bringing together resources, experts and stakeholders to create lasting improvements in senior care, child wellness, health equity and health literacy.

In addition, Cigna was a co-presenting sponsor of the Cardinals’ Breast Cancer Awareness Game in October, recognizing October as Breast Cancer Awareness Month. Five Cigna employees, along with other breast cancer survivors, performed and were honored during halftime.
