FAQs About Tackle Trauma 5k
What is the Arizona Trauma Association? The Arizona Trauma Association (ATA) is a non-profit organization comprised of Arizona’s trauma centers. ATA strives to improve the delivery of trauma care in Arizona through trauma education, collaborative research, and injury prevention initiatives.
What is Tackle Trauma? Tackle Trauma is ATA’s annual fundraising activity. Held in Tempe, AZ on Super Bowl© Sunday, the 2018 event marks our fourth year! The 5k course is great way to start your football Sunday with family–we’ve got activities for the kids including face-painting and a bouncy house! The moderate-level course runs on the east side of Papago Park at 1350 N. College Avenue. See the map for exact start/finish information and contact us at email@example.com if you have any questions!
What is the money raised being used for? ATA is honored to announce our 2017 injury prevention initiative which raised awareness about the dangers of distracted driving. Families, friends, and all trauma centers in Arizona are all too familiar with the tragedies of distracted driving. Targeting audiences from ”pre-drivers” through 50+ y/o, the ATA “Distracted Driving Kills” campaign was featured on 6 digital billboards between May 29 and Jun 29, 2017, across metropolitan Phoenix, AZ, and was displayed to over 1 MILLION drivers each week!
The billboard locations were: I-17/Camelback (facing north); I-10 South of AZ51 (facing south); 7th St/Jackson (facing south); I-10/Ray Road (facing south); I-10/Salt River (facing east); Loop 101/Camelback (facing south).
Who is affected by trauma? Traumatic injury is the leading cause of death for all children and adults up to age 46! Whether it’s a car crash or a fall from a ladder, countless people and their families are affected by trauma. All verified trauma centers are held to the highest standards of care and must also provide certain programs within their hospital and to their communities in order to maintain their verification status. Receiving care from a trauma center can significantly lower the risk of death!
