‘Relay the Message’

The Athletes Saving Athletes’ “Relay the Message” walk/run was held at Cathedral Catholic High School on March 2. The event was open to all ages of the public to see how many laps they could walk or run in an hour, and raise funds and awareness about Advocates for Injured Athletes and the importance of athletic training.

At the event there were also demonstrations on CPR and the use of automated external defibrillators (AEDs). Athletes Saving Athletes was created by Advocates for Injured Athletes, an organization co-founded by Beth Mallon and her son Tommy after Tommy suffered a life-threatening neck fracture in 2009 while playing lacrosse at Santa Fe Christian School.
