Advocates for Injured Athletes
Tommy Mallon was a lacrosse player for Santa Fe Christian High School in San Diego. During a game, Tommy and another player collided, causing Tommy to fall to the turf. Fortunately for the Mallon family, the school had a Certified Athletic Trainer, Riki Kirchhoff, on hand who recognized that, despite Tommy’s protests to the contrary, this might be a serious injury. Riki may have saved Tommy’s life. The rest of the story, along with information about the terrific foundation Tommy and his mother, Beth Mallon, founded is here.
