It’s great to leave all your cares behind when you go out for a bike ride, which often means keeping your phone home. Similarly, toting around a heavy wallet can be a burden when you’re out running. However, in the case of a serious injury or accident, the absence of these objects makes it difficult to identify an unconscious athlete or contact their family. GO Sport ID provides a simple solution to give runners and bikers peace of mind by creating lightweight identification that communicates the your most important information when you can’t.
They offer several different ID products, including wristbands and dog tags. There are a number of wristbands options, such as an adjustable nylon band or magnetic therapy bracelets. Each GO Sport ID not only has space for your name and an emergency contact, but also an inspirational message so that you can use your ID to remind yourself of your goals and motivations. You may also want to provide any other vital medical information that first responders need to know.
GO Sport IDs was started in August 2011, and is based in Houston. Biggest Loser season 11 winner Olivia Ward and runner-up Hannah Curlee are spokespeople for GO Sport IDs, and encourage all athletes to be prepared for emergencies.
“We’re proud to represent a brand that empowers people who are making the decision every day to better their lives in health and wellness,” said Ward, “staying fit and safe is a necessity now in our lives and we hope to help others incorporate that mantra into theirs.”
UPDATE [10/17/2011]: In honor of breast cancer awareness month, Go Sport ID will donate $1.00 to Susan G. Komen for the Cure for every band bought in the month of October. Just be sure to use the “4Pink” promo code when you check out. Hannah and Olivia are promoting the campaign with the slogan “Team Purple Goes Pink for Breast Cancer Awareness Month.”
