The Jordan McNair Foundation’s goal is to diminish the number of heat related deaths that occur in student athletes. In addition to our goal, we sponsor programs aimed at community involvement and engagement. See a list of our programs below…
➕ My Body, My Safety: Player Safety 101
My Body, My Safety was established to educate student athletes, parents, and team players on heat-related illnesses. Through this program we will:
- Partner with medical professionals to educate student athletes about their bodies and how to know when enough is enough
- Educate students on heat-related illnesses and the stages of heatstroke
- Sponsor forums, events, and panel discussions to facilitate discussions around player safety from little league to the collegiate level
