National ThinkFirst Injury Prevention Foundation
Brain and spinal cord injuries are the leading killer of young people, taking the lives of more than 22,000 children under the age of 20 each year. In order to address these distressing statistics, FNI sponsors ThinkFirst, an award winning public education effort targeting this high-risk age group. The mission of the National ThinkFirst Injury Prevention Foundation is to prevent brain, spinal cord and other traumatic injuries through the education of individuals, community leaders and the creators of public policy. FNI’s ThinkFirst programs include ThinkFirst for Kids (2nd-4th grades), ThinkFirst for Teens (6th-12th grades), and Buckle Your Brain (a comprehensive helmet safety program).
Helmets On Heads is a comprehensive initiative from Schwinn in association with the ThinkFirst National Injury Prevention Foundation
Michigan Sports Unlimited
Michigan Sports Unlimited, Inc. (MSU) recognizes the value of sports and recreation in the lives of individuals with disabilities. Our mission is to educate, instruct, and provide unlimited access to a wide range of recreational activities in order to improve the physical, social, and mental well being of individuals with disabilities and ultimately empower them to achieve success.
Michigan Sports Unlimited gives individuals with disabilities an opportunity to become active – socially and physically; and ultimately to empower them to achieve success in many areas of their lives, simply by showing them that “It can be done!” The list of pros is endless�there are no cons. Many of the individuals utilizing this organization have been stagnant in various parts of Mid- and Lower Michigan for years due to the unavailability of recreational opportunities. By the same token, it will provide newly injured individuals, both young and old, not only a glimmer of hope for the future, but a brightly lit path to health and well being.
