Payit4ward Sublimation Tournament of Champions
Organized by: Danielle Torres
EVENT DATE Jul 12, 2014
A freak brain injury changed the course of my entire life. It is a subject that is very near and dear to my heart and while I can't change the course of my life, I can Payit4ward and hopefully change that of another. Our company, Payit4ward Sublimation, is partnering with the Oxnard Panthers, Oxnard, CA to help them build their youth football & cheer program. We are sponsoring an Adult Charity Softball Tournament from which 100% of the net proceeds go to the Oxnard Panthers. It is my intention to fund raise for as much monies as possible in order to better equip the team players and prevent brain injuries.
A Brain Injury can happen anytime, anywhere to anyone. Brain injuries do not discriminate and 2.4 million people sustain brain injuries in the U.S. each year? Early, equal and adequate access to protection will greatly increase one's quality of life.
Concussions account for 75% of All Traumatic Brain Injuries. Lives, hopes, dreams, families, and friendships are often altered in the wake of a brain injury. Injury prevention is one of the most significant mental health care issues in the United States. Brain injuries show themselves in different ways and can be the root cause of everything from Post Traumatic Stress Disorder to Attention Deficit Disorder. Most brain injuries can be prevented. Each year 50,000 persons die from brain injury. 80,000 to 90,000 people experience long term disability. For me one of the best things that could come from this event is for me to be able to get updated Helmets for the Oxnard Panthers. Riddell helmets can reduce concussion risk by 54% according to Virginia Tech. This is huge. Although you might assume all youth helmets are created equal, very few helmets offer this type of protection.
We will be grateful for any support or donation in any way. In Kind donations also accepted. The Oxnard Panthers are a 501(c)(3) organization and a non-profit tax code is available. Help protect children from harm because your, never the same after a brain injury.

Different marketing opportunities are available.
