Dear Family and Friends,

Every year, I plan to start earlier with my preparations for the Pikes Peak Challenge and every year I seem to fail. This year it has totally gotten away from me and I can’t believe that I am only two weeks away from this year’s hike! Where has the time gone?!?! I hope that throughout this year each of you has continued in health and happiness as we have struggled to return to normalcy and overcome the challenges that surround us in the world today.

I am so thankful that, even with the constant state of upheaval and unrest that seems to be our new normal, I still have the opportunity to participate in the Pikes Peak Challenge. This is my twelfth year! The 2022 Pikes Peak Challenge Hike for Brain Injury Awareness is Saturday, September 10 and I will once again be hiking 13 miles and climbing 7400 vertical feet up Barr Trail to the Summit of Pikes Peak. I can’t wait!

As I reflect on my participation in this event, I am not really sure what to say. I never thought back in 2011 that I would still be participating in this event in 2022 and how much it would mean to me. I never could have imagined just how many people I would come into contact with who have been impacted by a traumatic or acquired brain injury. And I never would have believed the amazing and continuous outpouring of support I would receive from each of you. It is truly humbling that, after all this time, you still support me on another hike.

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 each of you and the myriad of challenges and struggles that you face each day. 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!

I hope that you will consider making a donation to this important cause again this year. In 2021 we raised a total of $2050.00 together and we were again one of the top fundraisers! This year my goal is to surpass last year and raise $2500.00. Every dollar we raise makes a difference and is a great opportunity to help increase awareness! 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 support the Brian Injury Alliance of Colorado and to support me!

I Love You All!

Kory Mark Turner
