Four years ago brian and kathy haugen knew they needed to spark a change in football safety and according to Founder Brian Haugen, they are right on track:
"Over the last six months we have expanded in that now within the last year we have taken care of eleven or twelve schools across the region and outfitting them with rib shirts for football teams"
However, it's nowhere near where they hope to be:
"Our goal is to equip....educate and equip every middle school and high school athlete in our region in regards to type of gear that's commonly worn by the pro's and the college players but is rarely heard of or known by the students or their parents"
Helping out local teams may be the primary goal, but it certainly isn't the ultimate one:
"we've done some very aggressive fundraising and we look forward to the next season of taking care of more kids and we've grown our board and we are always looking for more volunteers to help with the prospects of growing larger and more national."
