INDIANAPOLIS – The Indianapolis Colts are proud to announce Courtney Larson, an Indianapolis, Ind. resident as a 2013 honoree of the Colts Anthem Angels program, presented by Anthem Blue Cross and Blue Shield. Larson will be recognized at the Colts home game this Sunday, October 6, 2013, for her outstanding contributions to the community.
Larson is a mother of twins, a dedicated nurse with Community Health Network and a recent breast cancer survivor. She was diagnosed with early stage two breast cancer in February of 2012 and thankfully, through early detection and aggressive treatment her pathology report in July 2012 read “no evidence of cancer.” Larson’s fight against breast cancer made her realize that for many women, early detection is more difficult due to being uninsured or underinsured.
This is how “Swinging Fore A Cause, Inc.”, a golf outing at Bear Chase Golf Club, was created. The inaugural “Swinging Fore a Cause, Inc.” outing hosted 120 golfers, 140 guests for dinner and was able to raise more than $25,000 with 100% of the proceeds going to the Community Health Network Foundation. Because of Larson’s selfless dedication to this cause, the money raised will go towards funding breast health awareness, detection, wigs and other goods/services to assist women fighting breast cancer.

“Anthem Angels…Honoring Everyday Heroes” was established by the Indianapolis Colts and Anthem Blue Cross and Blue Shield to pay tribute to Hoosier “First Respondents” who may have received little or no recognition for the strides they have made to help others in human-service related professions.
In honor of Larson’s heroism, she will receive four (4) VIP Club Seat Tickets to the Colts game, a feature story with her photo in the Colts gameday magazine (the Scout) and on www.colts.com, as well as on-field recognition at the game.
Nominations are currently being accepted for upcoming 2013 home games. For more information about Anthem Angels, presented by Anthem Blue Cross and Blue Shield, please visit: www.colts.com/anthemangels.
