The National Heat Safety Coalition was established in 2020 by the Korey Stringer Institute, Mission, and Magid.
The Korey Stringer Institute
In August 2001, Korey Stringer, a Minnesota Vikings offensive lineman, passed away from exertional heat stroke. Since the time of Korey’s death, his wife, Kelci, worked tirelessly to develop an exertional heat stroke prevention institute to honor her husband’s legacy. To that end, she joined forces with exertional heat stroke expert Douglas Casa, PhD., ATC at the University of Connecticut to make this dream a reality and the Korey Stringer Institute came to fruition in April 2010. The mission of the Korey Stringer Institute is to provide research, education, advocacy and consultation to maximize performance, optimize safety and prevent sudden death for the athlete, warfighter and laborer.
MISSION was founded in 2008 and is based in New York. Mission® was created to help you lead an active lifestyle by empowering you to take the limiting factors of heat and moisture off the table. With thoughtful design and state of the art technology, we’ve developed a broad portfolio of climate control gear, which includes hats, neck gaiters, towels, socks, and more. They work instantly and keep you comfortable for hours so you can do more of whatever it is you love. We take pride in creating products that support your passions and enhance your experiences from going on a run to doing work in the yard. That is why all our gear is made from lightweight, ultrasoft, proprietary fabrics with technology that enhance the natural process of evaporation and drying. Additionally, they are always chemical free and will never wash out.
