Alaxo Airway Stents Teams Up with National Football League
Alumni Association Partnership provides important pathway to better, safer sleep, improved athletic performance
Alaxo Airway Stents (Alaxo) is pleased to announce our partnership with the National Football League Alumni Association (NFLA) to provide alternative, innovative stent-based therapies for snoring, sleep apnea, and overall enhanced health and well-being to NFLA members, their spouses, friends and families.
The NFLA was founded in 1967 and is the oldest and most recognizable national organization of retired professional athletes. NFL Alumni consists of former NFL players, coaches, executives, spouses, cheerleaders and associate members.
Over the years, members of the organization have encountered serious health challenges resulting from sleep apnea and this partnership will provide its stakeholders with an important pathway to better, safer sleep. Quality sleep is especially important to the NFLA’s older members’ general health and for younger members who want to optimize athletic performance.
Looking Forward and Giving Back
This exciting partnership with the NFLA gives Alaxo an opportunity to ensure greater health and well-being and overall quality of life for NFLA members and their families. It also gives us the ability to work directly with the NFLA in their efforts to give back to those less fortunate through a variety NFLA charity programs.
Part of the NFLA’s dual mission is "Caring for Kids." Player alumni give back in their local communities by raising funds for youth-related charities through their 35 regional chapters—a tradition that has existed for more than 50 years.
Alumni support typically raises more than $1.5 million per year for worthwhile causes. The other half of NFLA’s mission, “Caring for Our Own” serves, assists and informs its members and their families. Alumni members are offered a diverse package of wellness, business, career and legal services to help members and their families to be healthy, productive and connected to one another.
This partnership will also provide an educational component on the benefits of good sleep.
