Don Hooton: Making A Difference In The Fight Against Appearance and Performance Enhancing Drugs

A couple of years ago, in recognition of April as Youth Sports Safety Month, MomsTeam asked 30 experts to write a blog answering two questions: first, how or why did they get into their field, and second, how have they made a difference in the life of a youth athlete in the past year.  

Again this year, we are reprising some of those blogs, including this one by a good friend of MomsTEAM, Don Hooton, Sr., president of the Taylor Hooton Foundation. His story, and the work his foundation is doing to educate America's youth and adult influencers about the dangers of Appearance and Performance Enhancing Drugs (APEDs) and to equip adult leaders to engage, is an inspiration to youth sports safety activists everywhere.  

Today, we are honored to hear the story of Don Hooton, Sr. of the Taylor Hooton Foundation, which is working to educate America's youth and adult influencers about the dangers of Appearance and Performance Enhancing Drugs.
