Jah-Med is a non-profit 501.3(c) and their staff are volunteers. When Jah-Med heard about our race they were 100% on board with being involved and helping us with the high cost of medical needs for the Bite Hard – this race is rural, and it’s in the best interest of every racer that we have on-hand first responders with vital equipment such as defibrillators, back boards and other first response gear that can save lives.
Offering basic life support that includes triage / facilitating transport to a higher level of care those who may become unexpectedly more seriously ill or injured. JahMed’s psychiatric, medical and nursing teams work seamlessly hand in hand to provide comprehensive, coordinated health care within the scope of their volunteer based practice.
If you can please take some time and donate to Jah-Med, they are at our race on a volunteer basis.
