Golden Knights Jerseys For Sale .The Detroit Lions linebacker ended up raising more than $30,000 for the Enough SAID (Enough Sexual Assault in Detroit) program trying to test more than 11,000 neglected rape kits and then investigate the findings.Domestic violence awareness has been an issue Levy has undertaken during the past year both in essays and speaking out publicly to try to raise awareness. The attention he has put on the issue -- either from his voice or the T-shirt campaign with Our Issue written on the shirt -- ended up helping.Theres a lot of effects to it, and this is one of those things where we have to create a culture where were supportive, men, women and children who decide to report, stand up and say something, they do the right thing, Levy told ESPN. Their evidence is sitting in a warehouse for 20 years or whatever. ... Its just unbelievable.Thats something that you really wouldnt believe to be true. I reached out to them earlier this year and this came about later. I saw a lot of the work that they were doing and it just made sense to me.Peg Tallet, the chief community engagement officer for the Michigan Womens Foundation, which runs Enough SAID, told ESPN it costs $490 to test a neglected rape kit. Tallet said the organization has tested approximately 10,900 of the 11,341 kits that were discovered in the warehouse when the project began five years ago.So Tallet said the money Levy raised and donated will either finish off the testing of the kits -- or, if the organization finds they have enough funds for that, itll fund an investigator for potentially a year. Once the kits are tested, the evidence is there, but what the kits discovered still needs to be investigated. Tallet said there are 263 cases currently being investigated and more than 1,100 ready to be investigated.If we can fund an investigator for a year, Tallet said. That could save 200 to 400 women or children from being left out of justice.Levy initially made a donation on his own in the spring through the Enough SAID website. He then started speaking with the organization, trying to find out what else he could do to help and eventually came up with the T-shirt campaign. Shea Theodore Jersey . MORITZ, Switzerland -- Fog prevented downhill racers from getting their Olympic dress rehearsal. William Karlsson Jersey .ca looks back at the stories and moments that made the year memorable. . LeBron James and Chris Bosh didnt need any more. Williams scored 11 points in 10 minutes, Alan Anderson scored 17 points, and the Brooklyn Nets finished the exhibition season with a 108-87 win over the Miami Heat on Friday night. ANAHEIM, Calif. -- If Jered Weaver is in his final week with the Los Angeles Angels, the veteran right-hander will try to finish his 11 seasons the right way.And if he returns to his only big-league team next year, Weaver has a strong finish to build upon.Weaver pitched five scoreless innings of one-hit ball before leaving with lower-back tightness, and the Angels beat the Oakland Athletics 2-1 on Monday night when Yunel Escobar scored on Albert Pujols weak grounder in the eighth.Weaver retired Oaklands first 14 batters before Danny Valencias fifth-inning single, using his deception and control to flummox the As in what could be his penultimate start at the Big A. The stalwart of the Angels rotation since 2006 doesnt yet have a contract for next season, but he has strung together a series of solid starts down the stretch.Its a little weird, Weaver said. Its different, something Ive never gone through or dealt with before, not knowing what the future holds. It was a little emotional coming down the tunnel here.Weaver was removed after just 71 pitches when his back tightened up on a 90-degree night in Anaheim, but he doesnt think the injury will stop him from pitching Sunday in the Angels season finale.After the game, Weaver said he plans to reflect on his past and future this week. He didnt specify whether he is contemplating retirement if the Angels dont want him back.My body is feeling a lot better, minus the little setback today, Weaver said. Its a decision that Ill have to make in the next couple months, at least. Itll be interesting to sit down with the wife and talk about it and see whats going to happen.Mike Trout hit his 29th homer early in the Angels fifth victory in six games.Stephen Vogt homered in the sixth inning for the last-place As, who have lost six of seven.After Sean Manaea largely shut down Los Angeles for seven innings, the Angels broke through against Ryan Dull (5-5). Escobar singled, advanced on Kole Calhounss double and scored when Pujols got his 119th RBI on a 45-foot grounder back to Dull, who bobbled it just enough to stop him from throwing home. Colin Miller Jersey. J.C. Ramirez (2-1) pitched the eighth and former As closer Andrew Bailey earned his sixth save for the Angels (70-87), who opened their final homestand of the season needing to go 6-0 to match their worst record since 1999. Los Angeles has missed the playoffs for the sixth time in seven seasons.BIG FISHTrout homered leading off the fourth, driving in his 98th run. The AL MVP candidate hasnt let up despite the Angels woes: He drew his major league-best 111th walk in the sixth inning to set a career high, and he added his 112th walk in the eighth, pulling one behind Tony Phillips for the Angels franchise record.BIG SEANManaea pitched seven sharp innings of four-hit ball for the As, extending his strong finish to the season. The rookie left-hander has allowed one run in 18 innings over his last three starts after a two-week absence with a back strain.Hes everything that we want him to be, As manager Bob Melvin said of Manaea. Aside from a few outings early on ... hes been borderline dominant, and against good lineups. Hes been good all year long.TRAINERS ROOMAthletics: OF Josh Lambo rejoined the team for batting practice three months after testicular cancer surgery.
