Dear Supporters and Followers of Brain Healing for Sports Related Concussions...
After 8 years of dedicating time, energy and love to the OneHitAway Foundation (OHA), we have decided to close the foundation as a 501C3 nonprofit in September 2022. When Brett, our son suffered his final concussion as a football player, we felt called to work in the brain healing space to connect others with the resources that helped him heal. At that time we couldn’t have imagined that we would have established a nonprofit organization with the mission of providing resources for healing sports related brain injuries and ultimately serving over 400 recipients. This work has been one of the greatest privileges of our lives.
Over the past eight years we developed our network to help build awareness of the possibilities in brain healing and brain health. We witnessed medical specialists institute a new realm of brain healing. OHA introduced recipients to treatment options they didn’t know existed. We have seen our network of generous/ loyal donors provide financial and volunteer support.
It has been an amazing climb to the top of the mountain, and from this vantage point we can appreciate how far OHA has come and how many people we’ve brought along with us. Fortunately we have been empowered by our incredible Board of Trustees, Medical Advisory & Sports Advisory Council Members along the way.
OneHitAway would not have been possible without the support of our donors, supporters and volunteers, and for that we are eternally grateful. Over the organization’s lifetime, we have raised over $700,000 in donations to support brain healing and brain health. Through our key partnerships, OHA has offered referrals and discounts to make treatments more accessible to OHA recipients.
Because of the strength of our community, we are now at a point where we can transition our work from the nonprofit organization to OHA’s network of loyal supporters. We are no longer seeking donations, as we will be spending down the Foundation’s resources by September in alignment with OHA’s mission. Instead of donations, we invite you to share OneHitAway’s website (www.onehitaway.org) with people in your network, offer healing opportunities to those who are suffering, and champion the modalities for brain healing. Brain healing is possible.
Through you, the OneHitAway Foundation’s mission will carry on!
With Sincere Gratitude

Update....OneHitAway's 7th Annual Charity Golf, Dinner and Auction Event is Sold Out! In keeping with our dedication to brain healing and overall health, we have decided to close registration for additional attendees on the upcoming September 23rd Charity Event. This decision allows all current registrants to enjoy more comfortable social distancing while taking full advantage of the golf, dinner and auction elements. We thank you for your understanding of this decision during this unprecedented time.
This 7th Annual is vital for our continued work and we encourage you to consider making a timely and valuable tax-deductible donation or purchase of a sponsorship package. Your contributions will benefit those athletes affected by sports related concussions. OneHitAway Foundation's 2021 Documentary will be premiered at this event and we look forward to sharing it with you shortly thereafter. We Are So Grateful of Your Support and Hope to See You!
The first Virtual Charity Event for OHA was a grand success! This fun and video filled event went from Oct 8th - Oct 13th. The bidding was very active and the donations were incredibly meaningful. This emphasized to us and our recipients whom we serve, that the OneHitAway Foundation movement is strong no matter what venue of offering. We thank everyone who made this happen! Your constant support and helping us changes lives. NICE!
In honor of Brain Injury Awareness Month, Wingtip has chosen OneHitAway Foundation.org to raise awareness about sports related brain injuries. Co-Founded by a Wingtip member six years ago, this non-profit foundation (501c3) stands as only non-profit in the nation that dedicates its resources to affected athletes for brain healing and brain health resulting from sports related concussions / sub-concussions. Through its programs, OneHitAway also provides vital education and support about this "Invisible Injury." All contributions made to OneHitAway Foundation during Wingtip March awareness month will be used to immediately assist those affected athletes and continue with timely education and support on this silent epidemic.
By bidding on your favorite auction items and or making a generous donation you will be joining the OneHitAway movement to provide brain healing options for all athletes of all ages and levels.
The San Francisco Giants on Thursday August 8th at Oracle Park while hosting the Philadelphia Phillies will showcase OneHitAway Foundation in their Community Clubhouse Spotlight. Our logo will be posted on the center field scoreboard in front of a sold out crowd at the 2nd or 3rd inning along with a 35 second PSA announcement similar to the one they did for One Hit Away last year. Stop by the table during the game on the main Promenade! We can't wait to see you ...Go Giants!
Exciting Recognition Synergy!
BioDirection Inc. just added OneHitAway Foundation as part of their "Concussion Education Center."
OneHitAway applauds BioDirection,Inc for their Concussion Recognition Technology. Their first product the TBITSystem, is the world's first multiplexing platform utilizing biosensing nanowire technology that can detect and measure very low concentrations of “biomarker” proteins released from the brain after a concussion.
As concussions are confirmed with clarity for athletes and everyone else, then the those affected will have more evidence that a proper brain healing treatment plan needs to be put into place. Since this is an invisible injury, we need to make it visible and that’s what BioDirection is doing.
