MRSA Awareness

I’m writing about this because I never heard of it and wanted to let other moms and dads know about it. Check out the video above.

My stepsons and now my son have all played sports. This is really important. I always knew their stuff was dirty and gross but never thought about them getting a staff infection from their sports equipment. It sounds crazy!

Protect Your Active Kids from MRSA

With fall sports in full swing, equipment cleanliness and item-sharing on and off the field may get overlooked between carpools, homework and bedtime. But, skin infections like MRSA, a potentially life threatening antibiotic resistant Staph infection, are the cause of 56 percent of all infectious disease outbreaks in competitive sports in the U.S.

It’s important that as parents and coaches we do our part to help prevent the spread of MRSA. You can begin by getting involved in the Equip them Well program through three simple steps – collect, disinfect, donate.

This is One2One Network Campaign, by posting this I will be entered to win a gift card. opinions are my own.


I'm a mother of 2 who likes to get involved in too much! Besides writing here I started a non-profit, I'm on the PTO board, very active in my community and volunteer in the school. I enjoy music, reading, cooking, traveling and spending time with my family. We just adopted our 3rd cat and love them all!
