Welcome to Atalanta’s Pride!
This is the Home Page of Our Girls Concussion in Youth Sports Awareness, Education, Advocacy, and Prevention Program! Tracy Yatsko heads up this first ever program aimed at reaching young lady athletes on the issues of concussion and brain injury. No one is better suited to head up this ground breaking program as Tracy suffered a severe brain injury while playing high school basketball. She lives with the damage caused by that injury daily and is a tireless champion.
It is with great pride that BrainChampions.org welcomes Tracy as the Director of the Atalanta’s Pride program.
Initially researched and created by our Director Dirk Knudsen the program was brought to fruition with Tracy providing input and her thoughts through collaboration.
This program promises to save lives and improve the lives of young women everywhere.
Also joining us at Brain Champions and Atalanta’s Pride is Allison Cook of Southern Oregon. Allison, like Tracy, has lived through several concussions and Traumatic Brain Injury and she brings her special brand of energy and personal knowledge to the topic. She is our West Coast advocate and Director for Atalanta’s Pride and was recently named Miss Oregon and is on her way to the Miss America Pageant where she will carry our message to the world!
