    On April 13, 2017, my life disappeared into a quiet, questionable world. My head and a concrete sidewalk encountered each other and everything went dark. Memories have disappeared; I will never know exactly what happened; things have changed and I’ll never be perfect, aligned with years of prosperity and determination; BUT every day is different, slight improvements and possibilities.

    “[…]Forget regret, or life is your’s to miss,
    No other road, no other way
    No day but today”

    Survivors of a brain injury must fight through unimaginable mental and physical challenges. There isn’t a cure for brain injuries; they don’t grow back like hair or fade like scars. While no two brain injuries are the same, they do have a few things in common. They are always present and dealing with the effects is a lifelong, day-in-day-out process. They require brain injury survivors to navigate in a brand-new world as they fight to establish a new normal.

    Almost 12 years in Colorado and I’ve never hiked a peak but I’m constantly ready for challenges and proof that I’m powerful, strong, balanced and rebuilding. This is why I am reaching out to family and friends to share my exciting commitment to participate in the 2023 Pikes Peak Challenge Summit Hike.

    The Pikes Peak Challenge will test my mental and physical boundaries as I raise money and awareness for those who have suffered an injury to the brain. When I finish, I will have hiked 13 miles and 7,400 vertical feet to the 14,115 ft Pikes Peak Summit.

    I’m raising money on behalf of the the Brain Injury Alliance of Colorado’s ongoing mission to improve the lives of those affected by an injury to the brain. For over 38 years, this organization has dedicated itself to the brain injury community and now I’m lending my support to their cause, and I hope you’ll join me. The Brain Injury Alliance of Colorado (BIAC) is the go-to resource for help and services for survivors of an injury to the brain, their families, and providers. Detailed information on BIAC was provided to me via Craigs Hospital, the center that provided return procedures and rebuild possibilities.

    To reach my goal, I need your help. Please consider donating to help me reach my fundraising goal of $200. (or more!) Check out my donation page to make a contribution or to learn more about BIAC.
