This will be year two that I challenge myself to 13 miles up Pikes Peak. I remember starting last year and being so excited…at mile 2 we stopped and could see the finish line-so far away.  I could not believe that I would make it all that way. I enjoyed every moment, every step, every hurt muscle, every nasty energy chew I took. The scenery, my strength and knowing I COULD DO IT was what got me through; along with an amazing, lifelong friend!  I met many awesome people, found myself in the trail and realized I am stronger than I think. I crossed the finish line, looked out at the beauty of Colorado and cried and how amazing I felt.  I want that feeling again…
I want to prove to myself that I can do it again! Please help me reach my goal!  And help those affected by TBI. 
THANK YOU!!!  Jodi Daybreak


<p>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.</p> <p>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.</p> <p>Did you know that there are over <strong>500,000</strong> adults who have sustained a TBI and are living with a disability in Colorado and that almost <strong>5,000</strong> individuals are hospitalized each year?</p> <p>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.</p> <p>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.</p> <p>Thank you so much for your support! Without you, BIAC cannot offer the much needed services to the brain injury community in Colorado.</p>
