Early Recognition is Critical
The Roughnecks are proud to partner with Team ERIC. The owner of the Dallas Roughnecks is also the founder of ERIC – Jim Gerencser. E.R.I.C. is a 501 (c) 3 non-profit that stands for Early Recognition Is Critical.
E.R.I.C. is the official charity of the American Ultimate Disc League (AUDL) and the Dallas Roughnecks. thrilled to have such strong support from the league and help from the players, who promote the sport and E.R.I.C. in school clinics. One of the biggest connections between cancer awareness and ultimate frisbee is self- advocacy.
E.R.I.C. teaches kids they need to speak up in a game if they get fouled, just as they need to speak up, if they notice cancer-related symptoms that we educate them about. ERIC runs clinics for kids, where we actively educate them on a lifestyle that makes early recognition more likely. Click here to find out more. http://www.earlyrecognitioniscritical.org/
