LifeVac partners with Eastern NY Youth Soccer Association

This medical company saves more than lives, they save futures too


GARDEN CITY, NEW YORK: LifeVac is proud to announce a partnership with the Eastern New York Youth Soccer Association, in which they will be the Presenting Sponsor of the Inaugural season of the Eastern New York National League Conference Qualifier (ENYNLCQ). The league will feature Under-12 and Under-13 teams, both boys' and girls', with each division champion being promoted into the US Youth Soccer National League Conference. 

ENYYSA and LifeVac believe all youth soccer players and clubs should have the opportunity to play and compete at the highest levels, regardless of club size and status. We support the league’s vision of “earn your place.”  LifeVac will also be a sponsor of the ENY State Cup.

LifeVac believes everyone should have an equal chance at life, during a choking emergency when BLS protocol might fail. “This sponsorship is an investment in the ENY Soccer Family. We are in the business of saving lives and we believe all youth soccer teams and families should have a LifeVac. This investment in Eastern NY Youth Soccer will help save lives as all ENYNLCQ League member teams will receive a complimentary LifeVac and funds will also broaden the scope and the impact of the league in the community,” said Arthur Lih, LifeVac Founder, and CEO.

“On behalf of the entire ENY family, we are proud to have such a great and impactful Long Island NY-based company in LifeVac as a league partner.  Together, we build a league and enhance the ENY State Cup and all League initiatives, while saving lives,” Jim Kilmeade, ENYNLCQ Co-Director.

Choking is currently the fourth-leading cause of preventable injury-related death. To date, LifeVac has saved 659 lives.  This is an incredible milestone that demonstrates the impact LifeVac is having around the world. Our hope is that we continue to save lives and end choking tragedies everywhere. We envision a time when choking no longer takes 5,000 lives a year.
