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 14,115 foot summit of Pikes Peak to join other hikers and supporters in celebration of brain injury awareness.

This event and support organization is of great significance to me, for my father suffered a fatal TBI.  I believe that it is important to help others on their path to recovery, and supporting this organization is one way to do so.  I also know that my Dad would support me in this endeavour and be cheering me onward!

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 everyone’s support, BIAC cannot offer the much needed services to the brain injury community in Colorado.
