Kids at risk of severe allergies attend soccer clinic hosted by the Montreal Impact and Allerject™

Quote:
The Montreal Impact and Allerject™ have teamed up to raise public awareness of severe allergies and the emergency treatment of anaphylaxis.

"The club is delighted to be playing a role in this important effort," said Impact president Joey Saputo. "We have a lot of young fans and we want to do everything we can to promote their safety."

The new partnership agreement includes the creation of the Allerject™ Zone at the stadium where fans can learn about the challenges of anaphylaxis and about Allerject™, the world's first and only 'talking' epinephrine auto-injector available from Sanofi Canada. The Montreal Impact and its Academy teams are now also stocking Allerject™ in their emergency medical kits and first-aid stations.

I think this is great!

We still have a stigma about allergies and asthma in the media. Characters with these conditions are often portrayed as being weak, sickly or are the brunt of jokes.

Kudos to the Montreal Impact and Allerject™ for taking steps to empower our children and to show everyone that we will not be defined by our condition! :happydance
