Jan 29, 2015Aid For The Severely Injured
National Sports Leagues of America (NSLA) has created a patent-pending “Injured Athlete Alert” system, established to maximize the fundraising response rate from individuals throughout the country to assist the families of athletes and coaches who have suffered or sustained a life-threatening sports-related injury. This “Injured Athlete Alert” system is a free resource that covers injured athletes of all experience levels–from high school to college to professional.
When an athlete is injured–spinal cord injury, sudden cardiac arrest or heat stroke–NSLA will send an “Injured Athlete Alert” to members nationwide. (Membership is completely free.) Members will receive this alert by email, text message and on social networks. Members then choose if, when and how much they wish to donate to an injured athlete or coach. Within 48-72 hours, the families of injured athletes/coaches can begin receiving checks to help fund the necessary treatments to save their athletes and put them on the path to recovery.
Reports show that every year, hundreds of athletes suffer life-threatening injuries ranging from spinal cord injuries that result in paralysis, to heat stroke or sudden cardiac arrest. The average cost of a spinal cord injury ranges from $500,000 to as much as $5,000,000 over a person’s lifespan. National Sports Leagues of America was launched in response to the fundraising needs of the families affected by tragic sports injuries. NSLA is a free resource for schools, colleges and professional sports organizations to assist athletes and coaches who have suffered or sustained a life-threatening injury. The patent-pending system maximizes the response rate from individuals throughout the country to improve fundraising efforts.
“Families who are affected by tragic sports-related events often need a way to cover the medical or funeral costs involved,” said Zina Barrow, president, National Sports Leagues of America. “Even with immediate fundraising efforts in place, the problem is often getting enough recognition to raise the needed funds. That’s where NSLA comes in. Immediate action through the NSLA network makes it possible for a sports related injury or death to gain nationwide attention and greater fundraising results.”
NSLA recognizes the importance of having a support system to help the athletic team, families, and even student bodies. NSLA members are opt-in subscribers from around the country who want to give back and make a difference in the lives of injured athletes and their families. These members form a network that can instantly spring into action to provide aide. This widespread effort can make the difference in being able to cover expenses and even give athletes, coaches and their families support in the form of get-well cards and non-monetary gifts.

Barrow added, “We’re on a race to reach 20,000 members by May 2012 so we can activate our patent-pending alert system. Only with that reach will NSLA be able to start making a real difference in the lives of these athletes, coaches, schools, teams and families.”
