I’m participating in the Pikes Peak Challenge Summit Hike on September 12th to support the Brain Injury Alliance of Colorado (BIAC).   I‘m hiking in honor of a friend from MN and all others who have worked to overcome the challenge of a like or even more devastating injury.  I’m also remembering those who can’t walk much yet even imagine being able to take such a hike.  I’m looking forward to the challenge and appreciate your prayers, encouragement, and any financial support.   

When I finish, I will have hiked 13 miles and 7,400 vertical feet to the 14,110 foot summit of Pikes Peak to join other hikers and supporters in celebration of brain injury awareness.

Although this is quite an undertaking considering the altitude, possible weather conditions and other athletic requirements I might encounter, it pales in comparison to what survivors of a Brain Injury face every day.

BIAC is the organization that survivors and families can turn to, with trusted staff who will listen, understand their situation, and provide them with solutions to help navigate their path to recovery.

Thank you so much for your support! Without you, BIAC cannot offer the much needed services to the brain injury community in Colorado.
