Manufacturer of athletic training equipment, Impact Athletic, has launched Impact My Team, a crowdfunding vehicle for virtual fundraising. Impact My Team intends on assisting organizations to “bridge the gap” between their available budgets and their athletic training equipment needs.
“With a new level of attention being focused on the safety of the student athlete, driven in part by the increased awareness on the effects of concussions; the need for professional Athletic Trainers and the proper equipment, both on the sideline and in the training room at all levels of sport has never been greater. Impact My Team will help organizations acquire the tools they need to properly care for their athletes,” said Ryan Colosky, VP Sales & Marketing for Impact Athletic.
Organizations can quickly build and customize a crowdfunding campaign to outfit their teams sideline and Athletic Training Room with Impact Athletic equipment. Organizations engage their fans by providing a link to their campaign using traditional methods such as e-mail and printed materials, as well as through integration to social media outlets such as Twitter and Facebook. Potential supporters are directed to the campaign where they can quickly understand the needs of the organization. With the click of a button, they can provide a secure donation towards the campaign, which when fully funded, will result in new training equipment for the sponsored school.
“Impact My Team campaigns are something everyone in the community can get behind. Any athlete, regardless of gender or the sport they play will benefit from having the necessary athletic training equipment in place so the Athletic Trainer can provide them with the best possible care,” said Kevin McLeod, President of Impact Athletic.
Impact My Team will begin accepting new campaigns effective immediately.
