Protect Your Active Kids from MRSA...EQUIP THEM WELL PROGRAM

MRSA is fast becoming more and more of a threat. This threat can be hiding in your home, your childrens school, church, and your local hospital. Many of us know people who we spend time with daily, only to find out they are carriers. And, as with all highly contagious diseases, we need to be educated and aware of how to protect ourselves, our families, and our children. In co-operation with the One to One Network, please check out the informative video at the bottom of this page. It will only take a couple minutes, and could save the life of someone you know from contracting this devastating and sometimes deadly disease.

"With fall sports in full swing, equipment cleanliness and item-sharing on and off the field may get overlooked between carpools, homework and bedtime. But, skin infections like MRSA, a potentially life threatening antibiotic resistant Staph infection, are the cause of 56 percent of all infectious disease outbreaks in competitive sports in the U.S.

It’s important that as parents and coaches we do our part to help prevent the spread of MRSA. You can begin by getting involved in the Equip them Well program through three simple steps – collect, disinfect, donate. "
