August 2020 Named "Abdominal Injury in Youth Football Awareness Month" in Florida


The Florida House of Representatives passed a resolution to recognize August 2020 as “Abdominal Injury in Youth Football Awareness Month.” This ceremonial resolution was sponsored by Representative Mel Ponder.

The Taylor Haugen Foundation aims to honor Taylor’s legacy while protecting youth football players from abdominal injuries. Having the State of Florida supporting the Foundation’s mission is a big win.

The resolution is a major step toward awareness, prevention and protection for our youth athletes nationwide. As the Taylor Haugen Foundation Executive Director, Kathy Haugen, says, “don’t prevent your child from playing the sport they love, do the research to find how best to protect your child so that they can better enjoy the sport they love.” Thanks Rep Mel Ponder for sponsoring this resolution!
