The Taylor Hooton Foundation partner with HACU on Hoot’s Chalk Talk education programs

The Taylor Hooton Foundation (THF) is partnering with the Hispanic Association of Colleges and Universities (HACU) to provide Hoot’s Chalk Talk education programs at a 5% discounted price offered to HACU members on the dangers of appearance and performance enhancing drugs (APEDs), including over-the-counter (OTC) dietary supplements and anabolic steroids.

The THF was formed in memory of Taylor E. Hooton, a 17-year old high school student athlete from Texas. Hooton took his own life on July 15, 2003, as a result of using anabolic steroids. His parents, family and friends founded the organization after learning of the growing number of middle school, high school and college students illegally using and abusing anabolic steroids, unregulated, OTC dietary supplements, human growth hormones (HGH) and other APEDs.

Over 1.5 million high school students in the U.S. admit to using anabolic steroids, not including those unknowingly ingested through spiked dietary supplements, and 85% of youth report never having a parent, teacher, or coach talk with them about the dangers of APEDs.
