Hi everyone! Along with my new venture Lit-Up My Mind (www.litupmymind.com) keeping me busy reviewing books; I am now focusing on bringing together resources for others in my TBI community.
After a devastating traumatic brain injury diagnosis in 2011, I was left with various symptoms including cognitive slowing, memory issues, and confusion, among others, but I can’t think of them right now. Haha…
Most days are still a struggle for me and it takes an incredible amount of effort just to get out of bed. But, my new life mission is to be an advocate for the TBI community since I know what it is like to live with the struggles, pain, and limitations it can put on someone’s life first hand.
I continue to take each new day as it comes and try to learn something new from it! I hope that you will show your support by donating any small amount towards this great cause. I am excited to share this with you, as it is my first venture in fundraising for the TBI community.
Like I said, this will be my first year participating in the Pikes Peak Challenge. The Challenge is to raise awareness for brain injury survivors like myself and to raise critical funding for the Brain Injury Alliance of Colorado (BIAC). BIAC is dedicated to serving individuals affected by all forms of injuries to the brain. BIAC’s mission is to improve the quality of life for survivors by connecting them with resources to help navigate the path of rehabilitation. Brain injuries are so prevalent and so devastating to not only the individual who had the injury, but also their families.
I am reaching out to my family and friends to share my exciting commitment to participate in the 2018 Pikes Peak Challenge. This fun-filled and exciting event raises awareness for the brain injury community, while at the same time empowers both supporters and survivors as we hike, walk or roll side-by-side. Last year $275,000 was raised to support the Brain Injury Alliance of Colorado! This year we hope to surpass that number and raise $300,000. Can you help us reach our goal?
I’m excited to share my commitment to participate in the 2018 Pikes Peak Challenge Virtual Challenge. Although I’m not able to be in attendance on the day of the event, I would like to lend a hand of support.
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 myself and the entire brain injury community.
Thank you so very much!
