ANNA MARIA, FLORIDA, USA, November 9, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ — The Mac Parkman Foundation announced that it would sponsor the well-known U.S. Adventure Racing team, Mountain Race Company to help spread awareness of the link between youth contact sports and mental illness.

Adventure racing is one of the fastest-growing sports in America. At the elite level, coed teams of three or four races non-stop from start to finish. Using only a map and compass, the teams navigate to multiple checkpoints while mountain biking, paddling, running, and trekking across extreme terrain. Competitions may be as short as a 4 hour “Sprint” or as long as a 10-day “Expedition” covering hundreds of miles.

“We are honored to sponsor Mountain Race Company”, the Foundation President, Mr. Bruce Parkman said. “Their reputation in the sport as serious competitors and their history as a top U.S. team in adventure racing events around the world will help us spread the word about the connections between youth contact sports and mental illness.”

Shane Hagerman stated, “We are grateful for the opportunity to represent the Mac Parkman Foundation. We look forward to showcasing Adventure Racing as an exciting alternative to contact sports and raising awareness of the signs and symptoms of concussive trauma in our youth.”
