There is an account entitled Injured Athlete Fund at the West Tennessee Healthcare Foundation. I cannot tell you how many athletes have been able to finish their high school career with the help of this fund. Many times, insurance will take care of surgery or MD visits but it will NOT take care of the specialized bracing needed to keep our players safe. We have been able to present each case to the committee and return these ladies and gentlemen back to the sport they love. It is a huge asset to the WEst Tennessee community and we are so proud that our young people can get the support they need without burdening their parents with even more bills.
