JacksonI want you to take one 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.

Jackson is just one of the 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 like Jackson and the entire brain injury community.

    Thank you to all supporters. I’ve been training hard (for us), every week for the past month to make this full hike for those we (you, RMHCS and BIAC) serve–

    Warmest regards!

    Update:

    The Pikes Peak Summit Challenge was so much fun! The weather yesterday was perfect for the event. The hike took 7 hrs and team BrainCare (RMHCS) did fantastic.

    Best part– we were lovingly greated at the top by some very important folks–TBI survivors and current brain injury participants (I got a very touching hug from a special young BI participant, many pats on the back and sholdier, handshakes, etc.).

    Thank you to all my supporters for the experience and your support for making this memory happen!

    Sincerely,
    Scott
