An easy guide to PLAN, PREPARE, & PROTECT from Exertional Heat Illness in any setting.
We were so sad to hear of Mrs. Curran's passing last week. She has cheered us on here at the Zach Martin Memorial Foundation from the beginning despite her own physical limitations and illnesses and we are so grateful for her support. If you would like to make a donation in her honor, please click the button below to go to our donation page. All donations will be used to donate a cold tub in her honor to a Florida high school. Donations are tax deductible.
Through our experience of losing a child to a completely preventable injury, this book will not only educate but empower every parent, coach, and student athlete who reads it. Readers will be educated on the signs and symptoms of heat related injuries, player safety 101, and questions to ask all coaches to keep your child safe while they are playing any sport at all competition levels. “We never want another parent to feel what we felt losing Jordan.” - Marty McNair
Soledad O'Brien interviewed Laurie Giordano, President of Zach Martin Foundation during this look into Exertional Heat Stroke deaths of high school athletes.
