LOS ANGELES, CA / ACCESSWIRE / July 30, 2015 / GTX Corp ($GTXO), an IoT platform in the personal location GPS wearable technology and wandering assistive technology business announced that current NFL offensive tackle Jason Fox and former NFL linebacker Colin McCarthy are joining the GTX Corp team as two of the Company's newest athlete endorsers.
Jason Fox is in his sixth season as a NFL offensive tackle, currently playing with the Miami Dolphins. Fox states, "I've seen, firsthand, many concussions on the field. Working alongside a company like GTX Corp, keeps me in the important discussion about brain health. I'm excited to support solutions like GTX Corp's GPS SmartSoles on behalf of myself and fellow players."
Colin McCarthy is a former NFL linebacker for the Tennessee Titans. After experiencing injuries, McCarthy chose to retire from the NFL in 2015. McCarthy commented, "As a new athlete endorser to GTX Corp, I look forward to working with a company that utilizes their resources to benefit those who suffer from cognitive issues. I could be facing some of these brain health issues in the future, and I appreciate being a part of keeping those who are affected safe and being part of creating awareness for others who are at risk."
Both athlete endorsers find that GTX Corp's suite of GPS tracking technology products, including the GPS SmartSoles, will serve as a great way for them to stay "in the game" when it comes to awareness and discussions about Traumatic Brain Injuries (TBIs) and other cognitive ailments.
"We are excited to have Jason and Colin join our growing team of Athlete Brand Ambassadors," stated Patrick Bertagna GTX Corp CEO. "Both Fox and McCarthy bring an element of reality and awareness to a very serious problem and through their advocacy can help us disseminate our message to a broader audience.
