Dear Family and Friends,

It is hard to believe that 2021 is already half over! Where does the time go? Throughout this year, I hope that each of you has continued in health and happiness as we continue to fight the pandemic and strive to return to normalcy.

I am so thankful that, even with the ongoing struggles resulting from the pandemic, things have improved enough to allow me to participate in the Pikes Peak Challenge for the eleventh time! The 2021 Pikes Peak Challenge Hike for Brain Injury Awareness is Saturday, September 11 and has returned to its normal look. That means I will once again be hiking 13 miles and climbing 7400 vertical feet up Barr Trail to the Summit of Pikes Peak!

As I reflect on the past ten years of participating in this event, I am not really sure what to say. I never would have imagined back in 2011 that I would still be participating in this event in 2021. I never would have guessed just how many people I would personally come into contact with who have been impacted by a traumatic brain injury. And I never could have imagined what an amazing and continuous outpouring of support I would receive from each of you. It is truly humbling!

The Pikes Peak Challenge means a great deal to me for its efforts to raise Brain Injury Awareness. I hike to support what I feel is a truly worthy cause. I also hike for everyone who has been impacted by the global pandemic that we still fight against. I hike in the hope that it will inspire you to keep trying, to keep hope in your lives, and to remember that there are people out there who care about you! You are not alone! Each of us is part of something that is genuinely noble and just as I have been supported and motivated by your love, I hope that I can inspire and motivate you. All of you have incredible stories and together we have created an amazing legacy that I will always treasure. Every one of you has been truly inspiring to me and I cannot thank you enough or express how much this has meant!

In 2020 we raised a total of $2205.00 together and we were again one of the top fundraisers! This year my goal is to raise $2500.00 and surpass last year. Every dollar we raise makes a difference, is a great opportunity to help increase awareness, and reflects our belief that things can only continue to improve! Whatever you feel you are able to contribute goes towards this end and I deeply appreciate any help you can give. Thank you for everything you do to make a difference!

I Love You All!

Kory Mark Turner
