It’s back-to-school season, and for many coaches and young athletes, it’s back to the practice fields too.
The Partnership at Drugfree.org, in conjunction with Major League BaseballCharities, again celebrates extraordinary individuals on and off the playing field with the fourth annual Commissioner’s Play Healthy Awards contest.Both organizations are committed to educating families on the risks of steroids and performance-enhancing substances. Our Play Healthy website and Play Healthy Awards are just two examples of how we encourage teamwork and healthy, drug-free competition.
One winning youth coach and one student athlete will receive prizes, including a trip for themselves and one special guest to New York City. They will also receive:
- Two tickets each to The Partnership at Drugfree.org’s annual Winter Wish Gala at Gotham Hall on December 3, 2013, where they will be honored;
- A $500 gift card to a sporting goods store;
- A commemorative plaque presented at the gala; and
- The opportunity to be featured prominently on drugfree.org.
We’re taking nominations now at drugfree.org/playhealthy.
