The Bain Capital hockey team will be participating in the 5th Annual Corey C. Griffin NHL Alumni Pro-Am Charity Tournament from April 21st to 23rd.  Since inception, the team has been the top fundraiser three times and finished second once.  We are aiming once again to finish first overall.

This tournament was the first of its kind in the U.S. and has been a phenomenal success, raising over $2.6M for concussion research at Boston Children’s Hospital. The Boston Children’s Hospital Pediatric Head Trauma Unit is the largest Pediatric Neuroscience Research Enterprise in the United States.  Ranked #1 in Pediatric Neurology and Neurosurgery by U.S. News and World Report for many years, it is home to the multidisciplinary Brain Injury Center.  Its partner, the Boston Children’s Hospital Sports Concussion Clinic, is a national leader in pediatric concussion research.

Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI) is the leading cause of injury-related death and disability in children.  Concussions are receiving a lot of attention as a result of high profile cases in the NFL and NHL and the Will Smith film, Concussion.  ​A history of TBI, including concussions, is associated with the increased risk of Alzheimer's disease and Chronic Traumatic Encephalopathy (CTE) later in life.  Yet, there are no known specific therapies for TBI.

The funds raised by the Corey C. Griffin NHL Alumni Pro-Am aim to change that by directing funds to three areas:

MASSACHUSETTS CONCUSSION MANAGEMENT COALITION

This program provides Massachusetts public schools with baseline and post-injury impact testing free of charge. This year, the program is in 130 schools providing 9,000 free baseline tests and 404 post-injury tests.  ​Funds from previous tournaments enabled the rollout of this initiative.

COREY C. GRIFFIN RESEARCH FUND

Hospital-wide research grant to stimulate new innovation in diagnosis and treatment for TBI.  Funds from previous tournaments have supported work in these areas.

NINE CONCUSSION RESEARCH FUND

Develop antibodies that, in preliminary research, appear to prevent CTE.​  Funds raised from previous tournaments generated preliminary data which enabled successful grant applications in order to pursue this research. 

In addition to supporting a great cause, I'm dedicating my efforts in honor of Corey C. Griffin, a friend and former colleague at Bain Capital.  Corey's vision and energy led to the creation of this tournament and have had a tremendous impact on the lives of many.  I will be contributing $5,000 towards my fundraising goal of $15,000.  The deadline for gifts is April 18th.  I’d be grateful for your support!

Thank you!

Rob
