Run (or walk) a 5K and support trauma education

Straight Outta Quarantine 5K Run presented by the Arizona Trauma Association‘s Tackle Trauma is the premier race and fundraiser experience for individuals looking to support trauma care. This year‘s race will have a dual focus, as COVID-19 has changed the landscape for all first responders and hospital trauma personnel. In years past, our focus has been solely on trauma — Traumatic injuries are the leading cause of death for all children and adults up to age 46. But this year, the public health need is also to “Tackle COVID-19” through increased vaccination. The prevalence of trauma in our state did not decrease during Quarantine, remaining at 6.27 per 1000 Arizonans. And the trauma community continued to do its important work every day Now, most healthcare workers are vaccinated, but it is important for every eligible person to get a vaccine for us to move beyond Quarantine and into the reopening phase of this pandemic. Sign up to help us spread the word about these important issues, and to help raise money for trauma education!”in the Arizona Trauma Association as we Tackle Trauma! By participating in this annual fundraiser, you’re helping to provide valuable injury prevention, education, and research to reduce fatalities in our great state. Funds raised have helped AzTA sponsor injury prevention programs and education/training throughout Arizona.
