How You Can Help
To continue our campaign of protecting high school athletes we need financial support. As the official sports medicine provider for the Muscogee County School District and other county sports programs in the Chattahoochee Valley, we station trained professionals on the sidelines who respond immediately when an injury occurs. Our sideline coverage means that help is always only a few feet away. Our program also focuses on injury prevention through preparticipation screenings, wrestling assessments, concussion testing software, and educating the athletes and their coaches. Help us  continue to provide immediate, quality care and support when a student athlete is injured.

Sideline Medical Coverage
At The Hughston Foundation we have established safety protocols and procedures to reduce the chance of injury during practices and sporting competitions. If an injury does occur, our athletic trainers and sports medicine physicians are there to provide immediate care. Our community has approximately 5,000 high school and middle school athletes. During the 2016-2017 school year, our athletic training program treated approximately 2,500 injuries. These documented injuries included not only bloody noses and pulled muscles, but also more severe injuries, such as concussions, fractures, asthma attacks, and wounds requiring stitches. Some athletes required follow-up with a physician and rehabilitation to recover fully. Most often, treatment was rendered on the sidelines during practice and sporting events at no cost to the athlete or his or her parents or guardian. Our athletic trainers are on hand to educate athletes and their families or guardians about caring for the injury or illness and to assist in rehabilitation.
