Your participation in this event will help us raise awareness for traumatic brain injury survivors and help us promote helmet safety in youth sports.  Our nonprofit founded n 2015, in honor of retired police officer Tony Meduri, who suffered a traumatic brain injury.  In 2011, he was hit by a drugged, uninsured driver while sitting at a red light.  After months in the hospital, he required 24/7 care and had to give up his home, love of cars, and life as he once knew it.  Tony passed on but we continue the mission to support TBI survivors.
Your support allowed us to bring the First Camp TBI Jacksonville in May 2019 that directly supported 50 caregivers and their survivors.
 Your support has allowed us to provide financial funding for TBI survivors to attend long term care programs and quality of life support.
We have also recently launched our Play t Protect it Campaign to help promote helmet safety and concussion prevention in youth sports.
