July community event will give medical clearance for school sports to up to 500 youth athletes
WALNUT CREEK, Calif. (May 20, 2013)– Hundreds of Bay Area student athletes will converge July 27 on Muir Orthopaedic Specialists to receive their sports physical exam in an event where local physicians contribute their time and expertise to making sure that student athletes are fit to compete in their chosen sport when school begins in the fall.
Pass To Play: A Community Sports Physicals Event for Bay Area Youth was created to help make sports participation safe by offering students an economical sports physical performed by the orthopedists and sports medicine specialists at Muir Orthopaedic Specialists (MOS). Student athletes will pay only $30 for the sports physical.
Beginning May 20, they can sign up on at www.eventbrite.com/event/6066229255 to schedule their exam on July 27 between 9 a.m. and 3 p.m. Students will need to fill out a pre-registration form before the event.
The physicians of Muir Orthopaedics support our community’s sports programs in every way possible, said KC Campion, CEO of MOS. Our doctors want to offer their professional skills to help enable the youth in our community to participate in the school athletic programs of their choice.
All proceeds from the Pass to Play event will be directed back to the students’ school athletic programs, and a copy of the exam will be sent to each student athlete’s personal physician. Plus, select vendors will be on hand throughout the event with special giveaways for participants.
MOS is offering Pass To Play in part because of their active involvement in local student athletics. Several MOS physicians serve as doctors and medical advisors to Bay Area sports teams at the youth, high school, college and professional levels.
