Dear Family and Friends,

Yup, you guessed it! Time for my annual Pikes Peak Challenge email. While I am not as late getting this out as I was last year, it is still later than I planned and I am sorry about that. I hope that 2023 has brought health and happiness to each of you and that you have high hopes for the remainder of the year.

I am so thankful for yet another opportunity to participate in the Pikes Peak Challenge. This is my thirteenth year! The 2023 Pikes Peak Challenge Hike for Brain Injury Awareness is Saturday, September 9 and I will once again be hiking 13 miles and climbing 7400 vertical feet up Barr Trail to the Summit of Pikes Peak. I hope that the weather cooperates more this year and I get to make it all the way to the summit!

What do I say different this year than I have for the past 12? I never thought, back in 2011, that I would still be participating in this event thirteen years later and how much it would mean to me. I never could have imagined just how many people I would come in 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 receive from each of you. It is truly humbling that, after all this time, you continue to support me on each 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 2022 we raised a total of $2700.00 together and we were again one of the top fundraisers! This year my goal is to match last year and raise $2700.00 again. 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
