Friday July 10, 2015
LAS VEGAS – The Arena Football League (AFL) has once again partnered with the Jason Foundation to host “Jason’s Week” during Week 16 of the 2015 AFL season.
The Jason Foundation is an organization dedicated to the prevention of the “Silent Epidemic” of youth suicide through awareness and educational programs that equip young people, educators, youth workers and parents with the tools and resources to help identify and assist at-risk youth.
The second annual “Jason’s Week” will run through Week 16 and serve to raise awareness and support prevention of youth suicide through in-game operations and social media campaigns. All AFL games will feature Jason Foundation information booths, video presentations and t-shirt giveaways. League and team representatives will also wear special Jason Foundation lapel pins on game days.
In addition, the AFL will present the Jason Foundation Community Service Award at ArenaBowl XXVIII to the AFL team most active in their communities throughout the season.
