Our team, The Fellowship of the Crazy People, have many connections and relationships with survivors of traumatic brain injuries (TBI). My dad has survived a TBI from the Army, and my mother in law from a car accident in her youth. 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.
The Pikes Peak Challenge is a great metaphor for the long and uphill journey that survivors of TBI’s go through as they strive to recover. I am so honored to be participating in the event for the first time and I’m excited to be joined by members from my church and circle of friends to form a team this year for the event.

Fund raising is critical for Brain Injury Alliance of Colorado (BIAC) to continue supporting survivors in our state, which 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 be a great test of 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.
Please help our team raise money on behalf of the the Brain Injury Alliance of Colorado to support their 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 our team is lending support to their cause, and I hope you will 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.

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.
