Nick Jonas Teams With Bayer Diabetes For `Give Back. Simply Win.` Contest
By Mike Boyle

A new contest - "Give Back. Simply Win." - sponsored by Bayer Diabetes Care will shine a spotlight on people with diabetes who are making a difference in their local communities. Three grand prize winners will meet international singing sensation Nick Jonas (pictured) from the Jonas Brothers and Bayer will donate $5,000 to three not-for-profit charitable causes, one selected by each winner.

Jonas, now 17, was diagnosed with type 1 diabetes when he was 13. Since he publicly announced his diagnosis, he has become widely recognized not only for his musical talents, but also for his efforts to inspire people with diabetes and give back to fans that inspire him.

"One of the things we`ve been so impressed with is how much people with diabetes are doing for their communities," said Jonas. "Bayer and I hope that through this contest we can call attention to them and thank people with diabetes who support and inspire others, whether it be through volunteering or fundraising."
