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 (BIAC).

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 (TBI).  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?!?

Every year, family and friends participate in the Pikes Peak Challenge to raise awareness for brain injury survivors 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. 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 me help BIAC reach this goal?

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, all those affected by TBI, and together we can make a huge impact for brain injury survivors & the entire brain injury community.

    Go Barry!! You find more ways to climb the heights of this particular mountain each year. Best of luck in your fund-raising. Loved the pictures of Dad, whom we all miss very much.
