I am so excited to be able to complete one of my many goals on my bucket list this year on September 6th. I’m participating in the Pikes Peak Challenge Summit Hike to support the Brain Injury Alliance of Colorado (BIAC). When I finish, I will have hiked 13 miles and 7,400 vertical feet to the 14,110 foot summit of Pikes Peak to join other hikers and supporters in celebration of brain injury awareness.

Although this is quite an undertaking considering the altitude, possible weather conditions and other athletic requirements I might encounter, it pales in comparison to what survivors of a Brain Injury face every day. Did you know that there are over 200,000 individuals living with the effects of a brain injury in Colorado and that 5,000 new cases are reported every year?

The Brain Injury Alliance of Colorado is dedicated to serving individuals affected by all forms of injuries to the brain such as stroke, TBI, tumor, anoxia and infection.

Our mission is to improve the quality of life for survivors by connecting them with resources to help navigate the path of rehabilitation.

I am hiking in honor of Jackson Ziwak. He is an eight year brain injury survivor and he inspires me to never give up. I have to raise $150 in donations in order to hike Pikes Peak. If you would like to donate, please go to www.pikespeakchallenge.com and click on “Make a Donation,” and click on my name. Any amount of money would mean a great deal to me. Your donation is greatly appreciated and would ┬ámean a lot to me and to the Brian Injury Alliance. Thank you so much for your support! Without you, BIAC cannot offer the much needed services to the brain injury community in Colorado.
