For the fifth consecutive year, Cigna contributed up to $10,000 to Cardinals Charities for every field goal the Cardinals made during the season. As a result of Cigna's sponsorship, Cardinals Charities has donated a total of $50,000 to area organizations focused on wellness, including the Boys & Girls Clubs of Metropolitan Phoenix, Florence Crittenton of Arizona, the Muscular Dystrophy Association and Phoenix Children's Hospital.
"The Muscular Dystrophy Association is an amazing organization dedicated to finding treatments and cures for neuromuscular diseases," said Edward Kim, president and general manager for Cigna in Arizona. "We are proud to work together with the Cardinals Charities again this year to support organizations like the Muscular Dystrophy Association that share our same goal of improving the health of communities where we live and work."
Cigna was also the sponsor of the Cardinals' Breast Health Awareness Game in October for the fifth year in a row, recognizing October as Breast Cancer Awareness Month. Cigna employees, along with other breast cancer survivors, performed and were honored during halftime.
