Final Update: Thank You

August 30, 2021

Thank you for your recent contribution to the University of Pittsburgh Sports Medicine Concussion Program. Because of generous donors like you, we raised $5,250 for the daily operation of the Sports Medicine Concussion research lab. As you might know, our research lab is the largest concussion research lab in the country, and every dollar counts to support this operation.

Again — thank you for your gift. Your support will allow us to continue to define the standard of concussion care.

Choose a giving level


Educate Yourself

20 percent of high school athletes who play contact sports — including soccer and lacrosse — will get a concussion this year. Individuals like yourself can make others aware of this medical need!


Seek Help

50 percent of concussions go unreported or undetected. People who suffer concussions may endure long-term effects if they haven't sought treatment. Your donation will bolster our efforts to reduce that number. You are the progress this cause needs!


Patient Satisfaction

Help us to meet our goal of 100% patient satisfaction.


Support Each Other

Around 300,000 football-related concussions happen each year.


Join the Team

Each year the Sports Medicine Concussion Program team handles more than 20,000 patient visits — involving between 6,000 and 7,000 unique patients. This sheer size is incredibly intimidating, but the team is working day in and day out to give patients hope. Your contribution will fuel that hope!


Fight to Win

Between 1.7 and 3 million sports- and recreation-related concussions happen each year. Parents across the country thank you for your donation to help us treat these patients and get them back on their feet. You’re saving lives!
