Picture1.jpgOver the past few years, attention focused on the impact of concussions and brain injury in the NFL and other contact sports.  Attention has turned to youth sports, and several states have begun to debate the issues.  Tennessee has enacted a new law that requires coaches to remove any athlete from competition who shows signs of concussion.  This law promotes education about the symptoms of head injury and concussion, and establishes policy in regards to return to play.  This applies to all public and private schools as well as to any recreational league for children under age 18.

CABIA was pleased to present Chris Nowinski, past sports and entertainment figure,  author, activist, who spoke at the fundraiser  on March 27, 2014.  Nowinski was an inspiring speaker and the event was enjoyed by many.

to raise awareness and funds for brain injured children.

 

They raised money in the Rally Across America for Brain Injured Children.
