MarkUBiz Sponsors Think First Northern Nevada Golf Tournament
MarkUBiz is proud to announce that was a recent sponsor of the Think First Northern Nevada Golf Tournament benefitting the local non-profit organization. Think First Northern Nevada focuses on brain and spinal cord injuries in teens and young adults, and this charity golf tournament partnership was one of many MarkUBiz will provide to this great cause.
About Think First Northern Nevada
Think First Northern Nevada was founded in 2011 in an attempt to combat devastating statistics showing an estimated 1.7 million people in the U.S. sustain a brain injury, and between 12,000-20,000 people injure their spinal cord. It has become the leading cause of death among children and teens.
Think First Northern Nevada operates on the basis that many of these injuries are preventable as they happen during sports, recreation, motor vehicle crashes, violence and falls. Programs and events developed by the non-profit educate young people about their personal vulnerability and the importance of making safe choices.
Fun at the Think First Northern Nevada Golf Tournament
In the first installment of the Think First Northern Nevada Golf Tournament more than 50 golfers came to show their skills, and more than 15 local businesses showed their support by sponsoring individual holes on the course. MarkUBiz joined the likes of the Reno Aces, Renown Health, South Reno Athletic Club and many more in sponsoring the event, which was filled with plenty of action and awareness.
Aside from the 18 holes of golf the event featured a raffle, plenty of food and drinks and a special presentation from a brain injury survivor. A very inspiring and influential presentation showed the importance of wearing protective gear during various activities, buckling your seatbelt and much more than will keep people safe from devastating injury.
Think First Northern Nevada has many more presentations planned around the region as schools and medical clinics, and they will be organizing a helmet drive that will give protection to those who are unable to afford it.
Future of Think First Northern Nevada and MarkUBiz
After completing the first of (what we hope is) many golf tournaments to come, MarkUBiz plans to continue supporting Think First Northern Nevada in their awareness efforts. We look forward to the chance to sponsor the golf tournament again, and we will help keep everyone aware of any other events they host.
