Your OneHitAway Summer Update!
OneHitAway Foundation
June 2021 Newsletter
Since 2014 Dedicating Resources To Athletes For Brain Healing and Brain Health Resulting From Sports Related Concussions.
Summertime Message... This Summer Newsletter is a fitting way to kick-off our Eighth Year of dedicating resources to those athletes affected by the ill effects of sports related concussions. Even though Fall sports may be a summer away and spring sports are completed, that doesn't mean there are not further chances to injure our brains while engaging in our favorite recreational activities. Riding bicycles, pool parties or even rearranging furniture, all present chances for head injuries and concussions. Traditionally, summertime is filled with great outdoor memories, so keep your brain healthy and fit. If you find the need to reach out to us or pass our work on to another individual and or team, do know we are here for you! 
As OneHitAway Foundation initiates its 8th year, we have
Eight Promises to OHA recipients and to our supporters.

  1. OHA works with affected athletes of all ages and sports.
  2. We utilize donations and grants to maintain our mission in providing financial and brain healing resources (upon need) to affected athletes suffering from sports related concussions.
  3. We provide timely brain healing / brain health education and support through our National Ambassadors and the (YSOP) Youth Sports Outreach programs.
  4. We work with the recipients' supporting staff (doctors, trainers, parents, families, schools, etc) through their customized brain healing protocols.
  5. We provide timely brain healing / health information to our supporters, followers and recipients via our website, newsletters, fundraiser events, and social media.
  6. We partner with other brain healing/brain health organizations (non-profit and profit) for the purpose of achieving the best options for athletes affected by this "invisible injury."
  7. We work to form strategic partnerships and education with supporting sports organizations (youth to pro) that provide governing oversight to their participating athletes.
  8. The OHA Team, consisting of its Board of Trustees, Medical Advisory Council, Sports Advisory Council, Strategic Brainiacs and Ambassadors continue in their pursuit of leveraging OHA's programs among their centers of influence (COIs).

One Wave Away - Surfline Magazine

Big thanks to our surfing world record holder Shawn Dollar (OHA Sports Advisory Council) for relentlessly working to help his community on this topic! The surfing community is discovering OneHitAway Foundation and the possibilities for their athletes. These ocean loving athletes are in the midst of multiple contacts into the water / waves with their heads / necks, which cause the “invisible injury” to reveal itself. This article interviews our co-founder and mentions OneHitAway many times throughout. Enjoy the read…we have many surfboards to repair! 
The OneHitAway Aloha Fund

The Aloha Spirit of supporters in Hawaii requested that OneHitAway Foundation set up a fund for athletes affected from sports related concussions who reside in the state of Hawaii.

The Aloha Spirit is the coordination of mind and heart within each person and is also an expression of love and affection. In doing so, we can offer more brain healing / brain health options to Hawaiian family members that are negatively affected by this “invisible injury".  All contributions to the Aloha Fund will be pooled and directed by OneHitAway Foundation accordingly only to those athletes who reside in Hawaii. ​Together we can secure vital funds for the benefit of those dedicated athletes of all ages and sports in the aloha state. Mahalo!

OneHitAway changed my life. After a course of TBI treatment, the fog has lifted. My migraines are now once every three months instead of weekly. I am working and parenting effectively.
