He may be a two-time super bowl champ, but in one respect Kendall Simmons is just like over $25 million other Americans.

The former Pittsburgh Steeler is living with diabetes.  And now the football star has teamed up with Novo Nordisk to recognize the star in your community with the Novolog® Community Star Contest.

Now through March 15, NovoLog® patients can submit their story and photo online for the chance to be crowned a NovoLog® Community Star.

Finalists will be selected by a panel of judges, and each will receive a $5,000 donation to a local diabetes-related organization of their choice. One grand prize winner will also receive a one-year online subscription to Weight Watchers to help with their diabetes management.
