Shoot for a Cure (SFAC) is a fundraising collaborative committed to monetarily supporting, increasing awareness, and assisting the prevention and cure of neurotrauma injuries.
Millions of Americans and Canadians live with injuries relating to the brain or spine. A large portion of these injuries result from sporting activities – like the 1 in 5 high school athletes who sustain concussions every season. However, often times these neurotraumas can be prevented by taking simple steps. Shoot for a Cure hopes to put a spotlight on this serious, yet subtle issue that impacts so many people, from those injured to their loved ones. SFAC is an international campaign that combines key neurotrauma communities such as the Canadian Spinal Research Organization (CSRO), the American Spinal Research Organization (ASRO), and the StopConcussions Foundation. United around a common cause, they seek to raise $10 million over the next 5 years. The BIG goals? Shoot for a Cure not only wants to help those coping with neurotrauma live more comfortably and save hundreds of millions on health care costs, but also to train hockey players, coaches, and other athletes on how to deter neurotraumas from occuring in the first place.
