Funds raised from the Leaf Pile Run will be used for IMPACT concussion baseline tests for student athletes. Knowledge attained from this test can help to make the medical decision for the safe return to play for the athlete. This is the same test taken by athletes in the NFL, NCAA, MLB, NBA, and NHL, and is provided at no charge to the athlete or school.
