The Center Foundation places certified athletic trainers who are highly trained medical professionals in high schools in the Bend-La Pine, Sisters, Culver, Jefferson, and Crook County school districts to address sport injuries, illness, and prevention. The trainers provide medical services and concussion testing/identification to children in these schools every day for practices and games. Research demonstrates that schools with certified athletic trainers have lower serious injury rates, better concussion identification rates, and faster return to play rates. This is a program offered at no-cost to Central Oregon athletes, and fundraising is essential to deliver the services.

Purchase your tickets early before they sell out. Visit http://www.centerfoundation.org/bounty-basket-raffle/. Drawing will be held on November 20th at 3:30 p.m. in The Center lobby, 2200 NE Neff Rd. Need not be present to win.
