Blue Jean Day for Brain Injury Awareness Month – March 2011
March is Brain Injury Awareness Month and once again Opportunity Project is holding it’s annual Blue Jean Day. BlueJean Day focuses on brain injury community awareness and education, while raising funds for Opportunity Project’s programs.
This year, BlueJean Day is focused on the Helmet Law in New Jersey for children and teens under the age of 17. Despite aggressive Public Health efforts, bicycle accidents are a significant percent of all traffic fatalities in the US. Traumatic brain injury accounts for two thirds of all bicycle-related deaths. Data compiled and reported by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration note that helmets are 85-88% effective in preventing head and brain injuries. Thus it remains alarming that only 20-25% of all bicyclists wear bicycle helmets.
Please join us as a SPONSOR in 2011 and help us educate the community about the importance of wearing helmets! As a SPONSOR, you will receive:
- Sponsorship recognition on all BlueJean Day print and electronic materials
- Company recognition in the OP Date newsletter, our website and all media materials
- Main Event and Star Sponsors are automatically entered into a Super Raffle for a chance to win a VIP catered luxury box for a NJ Devils Hockey Game valued at $8,000
- A presentation about brain injury and prevention from the Opportunity Project Speakers Bureau
Blue Jean Day is simple and fun. Companies designate a day when your employees can wear jeans to work. This is a great team building opportunity for your organization. Employees, who donate $5 will receive a brain injury awareness bracelet and raffle tickets to win great prizes.
The funds raised from this event support the Opportunity Project Clubhouse. Our mission is to empower persons with brain injuries to achieve self esteem, self determination, personal growth, independence and the attainment of their full potential
When you register as a Sponsor or Company Participant, we will send everything to make your event a success, including flyers, donation envelopes, wristbands, raffle tickets and car magnets.
