what are we fighting for?
Our Military Veterans and Athletes are suffering from the same exact injuries associated with Traumatic Brain Injuries (TBI). Paul Oliver, our dear friend, lost his battle with CTE after 6 amazing seasons in the NFL with the San Diego Chargers. It is through his legacy that we want to raise awareness, fund research and build a community that is focused around preventing what happened to Paul from happening to anyone else.
Through a Network of NFL and Veteran support we intend to carry on Paul's legacy as we progress in this fight against these illnesses. CTE, PTSD, Depression and anxiety are very real symptoms that we as an organization believe can be treated therapeutically.
What's Our Mission?
1. To create public awareness, education, and support medical research and technology focused on contact sports and Chronic Traumatic Encephalopathy (CTE) and Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) commonly associated with military personnel.
2. To provide a light for our youth through positive reinforcement from personal and group mentoring activities within the local community.
