Today, Patrick and I got to see up close and in person the new XENITH helmets and VANE mouthguards IMPACTED, Inc. purchased for the Wash High Football Team. Both of us were taken back by the warm-hearted and thankful young men who spoke to us and thanked us for the equipment.
Patrick addressed the team with his powerful message “MAN UP! If you hurt your head you need to tell someone. Concussions are real! Mine was 8 years ago, and misdiagnosed with wrong treatments, I lived the last 8 years in a wheelchair, but you see (he was standing and walking with a walker) I am getting better. Tell someone and take advantage of educational accommodations you can have because returning to school is really hard. Good luck guys, be safe, and WIN!”
