In 2003, my husband’s life was changed forever by a car accident where he sustained a traumatic brain injury. (You can watch a video of Jared’s story here). He has thankfully recovered and is thriving, which I am so thankful for! With Jared in my life, brain injury awareness and advocacy is now important to me. BIAC’s mission is to improve the quality of life for survivors by connecting them with resources to help navigate the path of rehabilitation.

I’m participating in the Pikes Peak Challenge Summit Hike to support the Brain Injury Alliance of Colorado (BIAC). 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.

Did you know that there are over 500,000 adults who have sustained a TBI and are living with a disability in Colorado and that almost 5,000 individuals are hospitalized each year?

The Brain Injury Alliance of Colorado is the go-to resource for help and services for survivors of an injury to the brain, their families, and providers.

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.
