USA Football: Standardizing Safer Football

A favorite team sport among kids and young adults, unfortunately football can be dangerous when played incorrectly and with improper equipment. But that’s all changing thanks to our partner, USA Football, and their national initiative to make the game better and safer for all.

As football’s national governing body, USA Football has established a new standard with their Heads Up Football program that educates commissioners, coaches, officials, players and parents on safer football practices. Their areas of focus include equipment fitting, concussion recognition & awareness, heat & hydration and Heads Up Tackling. USA Football members have access to a wide range of educational resources including age-based certification courses that teach proper techniques based on physical and mental capabilities. Simply put, their efforts have the changed the game.

“At BRAX Fundraising, many of us are former and current football coaches or parents of football players. We work with football fundraising coordinators from across the country every single day to help them raise the money they need to run their teams, associations and leagues. Our partnership with USA Football is just another way we’ve chosen to support these youth football groups in hopes of helping promote the protection of young players,” said BRAX Fundraising President, Todd Elgart.

In addition to equipment giveaways and other youth football promotions, BRAX and USA Football, in conjunction with several NFL teams, will be announcing a series of unique fundraising opportunities this fall so stay tuned…

Fundraising for Cystic Fibrosis Cure

BEF-Seal-hi-res1For the more than 30,000 Americans affected by cystic fibrosis, a fatal genetic disease of the respiratory and digestive systems, a cure would mean more anything. So in support of this population, BRAX Fundraising proudly helps fund the cystic fibrosis fight as a partner in the Boomer Esiason Foundation.

In 1993, former NFL Quarterback, Boomer Esiason’s two-year old son, Gunner, was diagnosed with cystic fibrosis and shortly thereafter he formed a foundation to find a cure. As a friend to Boomer, BRAX Fundraising stepped in to help in 2005 and has since donated more than $300,000 to the cause with a portion of sales from SpiritCups.

“Boomer was instrumental in helping BRAX initially score Major League Baseball licensing when our company was founded 15 years ago, so we decided from the very beginning that we would support his mission to find a cure for his son’s disease with every fundraiser we run. The Boomer Esiason Foundation is truly a great organization that not only funds research, but also transplant grants and college scholarships for people living with cystic fibrosis and we couldn’t be more honored to be a part,” said Peter Hexter, BRAX Fundraising partner.

Congrats TCYFL Cougars – Winners of the Football Equipment Giveaway!

Congrats to Heads Up Football participant Thurston County Youth Football League Cougars, winners of the 2014 Football Equipment Giveaway! With a community full of Seattle Seahawks fans, they loved our Super Bowl XLVIII Championship designs and can’t wait to put the $2,500 equipment grant toward helmet pad replacements and the “rip” tackling dummies used in Heads Up Football classes!

Hear is what TCYFL Cougars Franchise Head Coach, Jared Hubbard, had to say about his experience with BRAX…

“I discovered BRAX through USA Football and thought it was a great way to raise funds with very low administrative work for my Head Coaches. As Franchise Head Coach, I have 8 Head Coaches under me and although they understand the need for fundraising, it is not anyone’s favorite.

I spoke with my Sales Rep, Reed, and his advice and support were great throughout. He sent me the information pack and answered any questions I had right away. I devised a simple game plan for the product launch and away we went. For our area, having the Seahawks SB options available was a big hit. I ordered sample cups so our players could show potential customers what they would look like and let them know that if they sold four orders they could keep the cups. About a week into the presentation, Reed let me know he would give us a complete set of NFL cups to also use as an incentive. I gave that out to the highest seller who generated 19 orders!! It was very easy to setup and distribute the product once it arrived.

I will use a portion of the $2,500 to buy helmet pad replacement kits for some of our helmets. I am also going to order the “rip” tackling dummies they used at my Heads Up Football classes for all of our teams. I am 100% behind Heads Up Football and since I will be in my position as Franchise Head Coach for 4 more years (my youngest is 9), my coaches and I can impact a lot of young lives and change the game for the better.  

This was my first year as Franchise Head Coach and fundraising is always a challenge. I know the other 12 Franchise Head Coaches in our league and I plan on sharing my BRAX success with them. The product was a huge hit, and the ease of setup, team licensing and profit sharing plan ensure success!!”
