Protect your 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.

My boys aren't in sports just yet, but we are active in many play dates and kids groups so I understand the importance of being clean and disinfecting-especially with my youngest and his compromised immune system!

Disclosure: I posted this informative post about MRSA for educational purposes as well the chance to win a gift card from the One2One Network. No compensation was given. Please see my disclosure policy for more information.
