It's been a staple in Wall Township for 10 years: the Christmas Light Show to benefit Lincroft-based nonprofit Challenged Youth Sports. But the event's recent growth is presenting a few obstacles for organizers, who are trying to figure out how to keep both the crowds and the donations rolling in.
Every 25 seconds, a child in the United States is taken to the emergency room with a sports-related injury. That's 3,400 children a day and more often than not, young athletes between the ages of 13 and 15 are ignoring their injuries and playing even when they're hurt, according to a new study by Safe Kids Worldwide.
Every day, 3,400 children sustain sports injuries that are severe enough to be treated in the emergency room. Last year alone, 1.24 million kids nationwide, ages 19 and under, were treated in emergency rooms for sports-related injuries.
A number of parents think their child is competitive enough to continue playing sports in college or even on a professional level, when in reality a very low percentage of athletes are actually good enough to make it beyond high school.
