The proceeds of this year’s 5K will be donated to the Matthew Gfeller Sport-Related TBI Research Center at UNC-Chapel Hill. For more information on the Center and their work regarding concussion research, please visit http://tbicenter.unc.edu/
The Matthew Gfeller Research Center has made a strong impact not only in the research world, but in the lives of those they help and work with to ensure a better future for concussed individuals. CARR, Inc. and Just1 Apparel have placed faith and hope in the Gfeller Center, as they see the potential impact this center has in the sphere of concussion research and awareness.
Just1 Apparel is a socially driven company committed to improving brain health and players’ safety. Specialized CARR5K+Just1 headbands are available for pre-order. They will be available on race day and at just1apparel.squarespace.com
“Concussion research, knowledge, and awareness have come a long way in recent years- but so much more progress is necessary. Just1 was inspired by personal experiences and the drive to make it safer for other athletes, and aims to raise awareness and help fund the necessary research. A portion of proceeds from each headband purchase is donated to the advancement of concussion research and specifically to the Matthew Gfeller Sport-Related Traumatic Brain Injury Research Center at UNC-Chapel Hill.”
