Please sign petition to make it MANDATORY for a fully stocked ambulance to be on site for ALL junior high as well as high school football games... In honor of RILEY BOATWRIGHT. When people think of football, excitement usually fills the air. I mean, who doesn’t like the thought of fall weather & having an excuse to eat junk food while cheering on your favorite player and team. Football draws in more fans than any other American sport. What we don’t often take time to think about is the dangers that come along with this popular sport. According to CDC, in an 8 year span, 2.7 million youth were treated in the ER due to sports related injuries while 173,285 of them were traumatic brain injuries. True, having an ambulance on site wouldn’t prevent an injury, but it most definitely would benefit in an injured child receiving immediate care that could be the difference in life or death.

Very recently, our family lost our precious Riley at the age of 13 years old due to a football injury during a junior high football game. This is something no parent ever expects as their child suits up for a game. After Riley’s injury occurred, it took over 30 minutes to get him to a hospital that was 3.4 miles away. Would he still be here if a fully stocked ambulance had been on site??  Unfortunately, this is something we will never know. I AM PLEADING with you to sign this petition that would require ALL school districts to have a fully stocked ambulance on site during all JH & HS football games. This petition is just the first step of many but if it could help save 1 child’s life, it’s worth the time to sign and share. SIGN & SHARE this post so that it may reach as many people as possible. THANK YOU!!
