I’m participating in the Pikes Peak Challenge hike for Brain Injury Awareness on Sat, 9/9/17 in honor of my high-school friend’s birthday. Kumi was hit by a drunk driver on 2/13/87 and suffered a dramatic brain injury, she was 18 years old. Kumi’s birthday 9/8/17 – the day before the hike & my 9th time taking on the challenge. What a way to celebrate my dear friend! She is my reason & my inspiration.

There are over 500,000 Coloradans living with the effects of an injury to the brain. 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 and 7,400 vertical feet 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 and together we can make a huge impact for brain injury survivors.
