THE STORY:

BENIFITING: THE PLAYING HURT FOUNDATION™ (PHF)

"ONE OF LIFE'S MORE DEPRESSING IRONIES.  FOR THE MEN WHO CRAVE POWER OR ARE BEST FITTED TO AQUIRE IT.  ARE LEAST FITTED TO EXERCISE IT."  ~ Quote from Movie | EXODUSGODS & KINGS ~

100% of the funds will be used to launch PHF’s outreach initiatives and secure sponsorships for its June 2016 BUSINESS AND ECONOMIC DEVELOPMENT SUMMIT.

Many of us are aware of the impact “SIGNIFICANT LIFE CHANGING HEALTH AND FINANCIAL EVENTS can have on individuals and families.  The absence of accountable leadership (i.e., public, private, policy, etc.) and responsible resource management (i.e., monetary and/or human capital, etc.) further exacerbates the “QUALITY AND STANDARD OF LIFE” for many as a result.

Unfortunately, during my journey the quote from the movie "EXODUS" became my reality and I began to understand it all too well.  A massive stroke followed by denial of long term disability benefits in the middle of treatment and recovery.  More info @ www.playinghurtfoundation.org

A painful reminder of the impact THE POVERTY BUSINESS can take on communities – May 21, 2007 | BUSINESS WEEK | cover story by BRIAN GROW & KEITH EPSTEIN.

However, my story is irrelevant!  The important stories are about millions of people challenged every day to overcome “LIFE CHANGING EVENTS. Telling my story feels narcissistic.  What I will share is why PHF was established.

PHF PREMISE IS FOUNDED ON – “… WHILE INJURED OR WOUNDED ONE MUST ENDURE UNTIL THE MISSION IS ACCOMPLISHED – A CODE SOLDIERS OR ATHLETES UNDERSTAND AND LIVE BY.” 

PHF’s MISSIONREDUCE, MITIGATE OR ALLEVIATE THE IMPACT OF THE POVERTY BUSINESS ON MARGINALIZED OR UNDERSERVED INDIVIDUALS AND COMMUNITIES THROUGH THE EDUCATION, DEVELOPMENT AND EXECUTION OF EVIDENCE-BASED SOCIO-ECONOMIC SOLUTIONS THAT EMPOWER ALL COMMUNITY STAKEHOLDERS USING SCALABLE INFRASTRUCTURE INITIATIVES.”  More info @ www.playinghurtfoundation.org

“DONATE TODAY AND JOIN PHF’s CALL TO ACTION.  CHANGE IS NOT FOR SPECTATORS.  IN ORDER FOR IT TO HAPPEN, YOU MUST PARTICIPATE!” 

Tell your friends and family … Even the smallest donation or gift is greatly appreciated!

All inquiries may be forwarded to info@playinghurtfoudation.org  

In closing, THANKS SO VERY MUCH FOR YOUR SUPPORT.  I leave you with two quotes:

“THE TIME FOR HALF MEASURES HAS LONG PAST…”  “FACTS ARE STUBBORN THINGS; AND WHATEVER MAY BE OUR WISHES, OUR INCLINATIONS, OR THE DICTATES OF OUR PASSIONS, THEY CANNOT ALTER THE STATE OF FACTS AND EVIDENCE.”  ~ JOHN ADAMS ~
