Rockies icon Todd Helton helping relieve $10 million in medical debt for Coloradans

USA Today

Retired Colorado Rockies first baseman Todd Helton is helping eliminate millions of dollars in medical debt for Colorado residents.

Starting this month, Helton and the organization Undue Medical Debt will send letters to Colorado residents notifying them their medical bills will be covered. A total of $10 million in medical debt will be eliminated, per the Colorado Rockies newsletter. Medical expenses are one of the top causes of bankruptcy in the United States.

The five-time All-Star said Monday that he came up with the idea after seeing friend and fellow University of Tennessee alum Ryan Jumonville do something similar in Florida.
