Good day to you, as I know you are an incredibly wonderful person!  How do I know this?  It is because you are here, reading this webpage!  No matter what happens next, know that I appreciate you being here!

I’m participating in the Pikes Peak Challenge Summit Hike.  A hike that is 13 miles and 7,400 vertical feet to the 14,115 foot summit of Pikes Peak!  The purpose is to raise funds for the Brain Injury Alliance of Colorado

Why am I doing this?  Not only is it noble to contribute time, effort, or money to an organization that helps people in need, this is an injury that is close to my family.  For my father has transitioned from this existence due to a traumatic brain injury.  He has moved onward much sooner than anyone expected, leaving behind a fabulous family filled with nothing but love and fond memories of him.  I am participating in this charitable challenge in his memory.  Will you donate a few dollars to help me achieve my goal in support of the BIAC, those in need, and in memory of those who are no longer with us?!?

JacksonI want you to take one more brief moment to meet Jackson. Ten years ago he fell from a 2nd story window and sustained a severe traumatic brain injury that changed his life and his family’s life forever. Before the accident, Jackson was an active 2 year old little boy; running everywhere and doing everything. After the accident, it was uncertain if he would ever be able to eat, walk or talk again. He was given a 1% chance of survival. It has been a long and hard road for Jackson and his family. He is an amazing young boy who has overcome many hurdles with support from his family and friends and programs offered at The Brain Injury Alliance of Colorado. Despite having to relearn many skills, he has soared beyond everyone’s expectations.

The CDC reports that an estimated 1.7 million people sustain a TBI annually.  Life can seem hard and insurmountable without support and guidance. 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.

I’m excited to share my commitment to participate in the 2017 Pikes Peak Challenge Summit Hike. When I finish, I will have hiked 13 miles to the 14,110 foot summit of Pikes Peak.

Even more impressive than this challenge, is the courage and strength it takes for a survivor to overcome day to day struggles that come with a life of living with an injury to the brain.

Please donate now in memoriam of my Dad, and together we can make a huge impact for brain injury survivors like Jackson & the entire brain injury community.

Peace and Gratitude!

    How many Mountain Climbers does it take to screw in a lightbulb?

    One: they just hold the bulb up, and the world revolves around them.
