POWERHANDZ Inc., a leading athletic training products company, is hosting a private screening of the movie “Concussion” for 150 youth through The Power to Give Foundation. At the event, POWERHANDZ will be promoting Sony’s #GAMECHANGERS campaign which is aimed to celebrate everyday people who tackle challenges and triumph in the face of adversity.

POWERHANDZ and The Power to Give Foundation’s mission for this red carpet event is to focus on player safety for athletes and inspiring youth to be leaders in their community. Thousands of athletes play sports and POWERHANDZ and The Power to Give Foundation aim to further develop those skills while teaching and advocating player safety. The event will feature a red carpet entrance for guests from the Boys and Girls Club of Dallas, Top Achievers, Man-Up and several top youth athletes and athletic programs. There will be media interviews available on the red carpet, fun giveaways, the screening of the movie and a panel discussion with former NFL Wide Receiver Bethel Johnson, NFL Veteran Safety, Jordan Pugh and DFW Neurologist, Dr. Julio Andino. K104’s National Radio Personality, DeDe McGuire will moderate the panel.

“The Power to Give Foundation believes that playing sports can change lives, create leaders and instill immediate and lifelong benefits. This event celebrates the power of sports and gives us the opportunity to promote the #GAMECHANGERS campaign through POWERHANDZ and The Power to Give Foundation,” said Danyel Surrency Jones, President of the Power to Give Foundation and Co-Founder and COO of POWERHANDZ. “There are so many deserving youth in the Dallas-Fort Worth area and we have a responsibility to do our part in educating them about playing the sport they love, safely. We are humbled to be able to host a positive and fun educational event for the youth in our community.”

“We are excited to partner with Sony Pictures and organizations like The Power to Give Foundation and POWERHANDZ to amplify our everyday leaders of color across the country. ‘Concussion’ is a powerful film that speaks directly to the importance of standing in your truth even in the face of great opposition,” said Etoy Ridgnal, President, Community Advocacy Partners. “We hope the youth attending this screening will gain valuable information that will inform their practice and decision making as young sports leaders as well as inspire them to be #GAMECHANGERS in their own communities.”

The red carpet event will take place at the Cinemark 17 and IMAX at 11819 Webb Chapel Rd in Dallas, TX on Saturday, February 6, 2016 with the red carpet and media interviews starting at 3:15pm, the movie screening at 4:15pm and the athlete panel discussion to follow.
