Local physicians to collect used sports equipment throughout June

Advanced Orthopaedics and Ortho On-Call will host their third-annual AdvanceItUp! (AIU!) collection of gently-used sports equipment June 1-30. The initiative is designed to increase recreation options and active living at home and outside the home for local children who don't have access to usable sports equipment.

Items that are donated should be in good condition. They will benefit children at U-Turn Sports and the Henrico Police Athletic League.

The program will accept most types of sporting equipment, excluding used uniforms and safety gear such as helmets. The organizations are most in need of equipment for soccer, basketball, volleyball, softball, baseball, wiffle ball, football and biking. > Read more.
