Advocates for Injured Athletes will host their second “Athletes Saving Athletes Relay the Message” walk and jogathon fundraiser on May 3 at Cathedral Catholic.

The event raises funds to bring the Athletes Saving Athletes sports safety education programs to the community.

Registration opens at 10 a.m. and the walk/jogathon takes place from 11:45-12:15 p.m., followed by a post-event ceremony.

This year, Relay the Message focuses on concussion education. The ASASpeakUp Campaign (#ASASpeakup) calls attention to the importance of knowing the signs and symptoms of a concussion, and speaking up if you are suffering, or your teammate is.

There will be a concussion education booth at the event, and ASA will be filming a public service announcement that will be broadcast nationally. Participating in the filming is a special opportunity, and ASA needs representation from parents, coaches, and student athletes to make the broadcast a success.

The event also features a raffle and a free CPR training session. Light refreshments will be available for purchase.

Pre-registration for Relay the Message is $25, or $30 on event day. Register at injuredathletes.org.
