2019 Concussion Awareness Night Auction
Starting on October 8, the Revolution Charitable Foundation will be auctioning off a variety of Forward Thinking-Concussion Awareness Night items including signed warm-up shirts and match equipment. All items were worn by players or featured on the field at the Revs match versus Toronto FC at Gillette Stadium on August 31, 2019
All proceeds from the auction will benefit ThinkTaylor in their mission to raise awareness around concussion education, treatment and prevention.
ThinkTaylor was created in 2011 after Taylor Twellman was forced to retire from an all-star MLS career, when he was faced with post-concussion syndrome. He was scared and frightened about what he was hearing and reading. He made it his mission to make sure kids, parents, coaches and everyone else who has eyes on youth sports is properly educated.
ThinkTaylor's main initiative is Concussion Awareness Week in Massachusetts, in partnership with the Massachusetts Interscholastic Athletic Association (MIAA). Every athlete (86k+ student athletes) takes part in the week where they raise awareness for concussion safety, receive education and learn to be supportive of anyone with a concussion.
