The Childress Institute For Pediatric Trauma Raised $70,000 For Golden Hour Fund

The Childress Institute for Pediatric Trauma is nearing its goal to raise $100,000 for the Golden Hour Fund by the end of the year. The Childress Institute funds research and medical education, and raises awareness to improve care for critically-injured children across America.

"Did you know that life-threatening injuries kill more children in America than all other causes combined? We started the Childress Institute for Pediatric Trauma to find a solution to this problem," said Richard Childress, president and CEO of Richard Childress Racing and co-founder of the Childress Institute for Pediatric Trauma. "We take for granted that the best emergency care for our children is always available, but that is not the case. There are ways to help our first responders, nurses and doctors have access to pediatric trauma training and increase their knowledge so they are better prepared in these situations, no matter where they are in America."

No patient produces more anxiety in caregivers than the critically injured child. Budget shortfalls have forced EMS services and other pre-hospital care to choose more general types of training. When medical personnel are appropriately trained, there is a better outcome - children's lives are saved. To continue funding the life-saving research and medical education needed to impact this No. 1 killer of children, we need help.

The Childress Institute was involved in a number of research, education and awareness programs in 2012, including:

Funded research:
• Cardiovascular Changes in Pediatric Trauma - Dr. Alison Gardner
• Violence Intervention Screening and Initial Treatment (VISIT) program - Dr. Laura Veach
• KIDS study to measure head impacts received by youth football players - Dr. Joel Stitzel

Provided medical education:
• Hosted international web symposium with 1,012 participants in 33 countries, including a broadcast to U.S. Army FST (Forward Surgical Team) deployed to Jalalabad, Afghanistan
• Supported the 3rd Annual Brenner Children's Hospital Pediatric Trauma Conference
• Raised $70,000 toward "Golden Hour" medical education program at annual fundraiser

Raised awareness:
• Highlighted on Betty Crocker products at all Kroger stores
• Distributed national PSA featuring Richard Childress
• Supported by AdvoCare at Phoenix Raceway with RCR's 2012 NASCAR Nationwide Series Rookie of the Year award winner Austin Dillon
• Raised more than $5,000 from a race memorabilia auction with the NASCAR Foundation
