Pride, Preparedness, and Rainbow Patches
As the vibrant colors of Round Rock Pride 2023 began to fade into the evening, we at Street Medics Austin found ourselves reflecting on the day. The celebration of love, identity, and diversity was filled with joy and excitement, and we were there to ensure everyone’s health and well-being.
Our diligent team of volunteers provided necessary medical aid throughout the event, treating everything from minor heat casualties to cases of contact dermatitis due to the presence of some pesky poison-ivy. Despite a couple of unforeseen absences from our team, the remaining volunteers stepped up and handled the challenges with professionalism and compassion.
We Need You: Volunteer Today
Our recent experience at Round Rock Pride has underscored the importance of having a robust team of dedicated volunteers. The sudden absence of a couple of team members highlighted the critical need for us to continue to increase our volunteer force.

T-Shirt Fundraising Campaign: Four days Remaining!
We’re thrilled to provide a follow-up to our ongoing t-shirt fundraising campaign! Hosted on CustomInk, we’ve already sold 61 shirts, raising $830! These funds are crucial in enabling us to provide free CPR/AED training classes to our local community, a cause we firmly believe in.
However, we still need your support. With only 4 days left in our campaign, every t-shirt sold brings us one step closer to our goal. Show off your SMA pride, contribute to a healthier Austin, and help us reach our fundraising target.
As we anticipate our next opportunity to serve, we’re reminded of our mission. At SMA, we are more than first aid volunteers; we are a community committed to ensuring Austin’s health and safety. Together, we can make a difference.
Stay safe, Austin!
