How to Build Your Legacy with the #MyLegacyPledge
The My Legacy campaign recognizes those who have made a lasting contribution to research and awareness of concussions and CTE, and encourages others to pitch in and build their own legacies. The signature gesture of the campaign is individuals pledging to donate their brain for research. We call it the #MyLegacyPledge. More pledges mean greater public awareness of the critical role of brain donation in CTE research, and ensures a long-term supply of donors for this important research program focused on developing a cure for CTE.
NASCAR legend Dale Earnhardt Jr. pledged his brain to the Concussion Legacy Foundation in 2016. Earnhardt Jr. is one of more than 7,000 former athletes and military Veterans who have pledged to donate their brain.
