Thanks for listening to Sports Palooza Radio! We're back with another great show.

This weekend is the New York City marathon and Alan Brown is the Team Reeve participant who is a quadriplegic, training for the NYC marathon with a hand cycle and hopes to raise $260,000 for research. He'll tell us his story! What another inspiration! 

And, finally, to help keep players safe and prevent the kinds of injuries he sees in his practice, New York’s Dr. Patrick Kerr spent more than a decade developing a protective device that is put into standard issued shoulder pads and turns them into a system that engages the helmet as a football player braces for impact. He has invented The KERR Collar, which reduces head and neck movement 38% during a collision and absorbs 58% of the collision impact, redistributing the force of the hit away from the head and neck area to reduce injury risk. 

It's going to be a great show! 

(For those of you who might have turned in to hear our interview with Olden Polynice, we had to reschedule. Look for his interview in an upcoming podcast!)
