American valve will sponsor the 7th Annual HotStop NFL Alumni/Shriners Charity Golf Classic June 14 in Denver, N.C. 

American Valve recently announced its sponsorship of the 7th Annual HotStop NFL Alumni/Shriners Charity Golf Classic June 14, 2009, in Denver, N.C. The tournament benefits the Shriners Hospitals for Children and the NFL Alumni Caring for Kids Programs.

The tournament is in memory of Leah McCammon who was the victim of a tragic hot water burn accident. Several days before her first birthday, her grandmother left her in an empty bathtub for only a minute while she went to answer the phone. During that time, Leah attempted to pull herself up using the hot water faucet handle. The force of 140°F water knocked her down and caused third-degree burns over most of her body. She was air-lifted to Shriners Hospital for Children, which specializes in pediatric intensive burn care. She died several days later. 

The past six NFL Alumni/Shriners Charity Golf Tournaments have raised more than $2 million in Leah’s honor.

The confirmed NFL Alumni Players for 2009 include Dave Butz, L.C. Greenwood, Joe Jacoby, Blaine Bishop, Jeff Bostic, Joey Browner, Kevin Butler, Neil Clabo, Issac Curtis, Carroll Dale, Chuck Foreman, Mel Gray, Victor Green,Ken Huff, Steve Kiner, Barry Krauss, Roy Jefferson, Tony Jones, Louis Lipps, Greg Lloyd, Mark May, Stanley Morgan, Earl Morrall, Mark Moseley, Adrian Murrell, Chuck Ramsey, Gerald Riggs, George Rogers, Wesley Walls, Herman Weaver, and Dough Williams. The roster also includes Hall of Famers Joe DeLamielleure, Carl Eller and Jack Youngblood

American Valve’s HotStop shower heads, hand showers and tub spouts prevent tap water scalds in the shower and bath by shutting off the flow of water when it reaches an unsafe temperature. Tap water scalds are the second most common cause of severe burn injuries among people of all ages.
