Oakville, ON / TheNewswire / May 15th, 2019 - Eyecarrot Innovations Corp (Eyecarrot) (TSX-V: EYC | OTCQB: EYCCF) announces their partnership with NBA Alumnus Kareem Rush, who has joined Eyecarrot as a Special Advisor within High Performance Sports focusing on emerging vision training opportunities within professional, collegiate, and youth basketball programs. Kareem is a former University of Missouri's Men's Basketball Player of the Decade (2000-2010) and a pro athlete who played for five NBA franchises, including the L.A. Lakers (selected in the 1st round in 2002), Charlotte Bobcats, Indiana Pacers, Philadelphia 76ers, and L.A. Clippers. He is known for his jump-shot and overall versatility.
"I am enthused to contribute to Eyecarrot's interest within high performance sports, and of course, within basketball. There are many advantages Eyecarrot's Binovi sports vision protocols can add to a modern athlete's game. Technology that supports cognitive health and agility is the next wave of athletic development" commented Kareem Rush, Founder of Rush Branding & Consulting LLC.
Additionally, Kareem is an R&B recording artist and entrepreneur with a long track record of community activism. His charitable work in the areas of anti-bullying, youth sports, and healthy living has focused on underserved communities and culminated in two major altruistic endeavors: commitment to the healthy psychosocial development of young athletes and to the long-term financial viability of retired pro-athletes through his Rush Forward Foundation.
"The addition of Kareem to Eyecarrot's advisory committee will add depth and practical development within the expansion of our sports interests, specifically within the sport of basketball. We are thrilled to have him as a part of our team" said Adam Cegielski, President & CEO of Eyecarrot Innovations Corp.
