Hello Family and Friends,

In just under two months I will be 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?

During my years in the field of speech language pathology, I have had the opportunity to walk alongside of many of these individuals as they work to overcome the challenges presented by their injuries.  I feel privileged to be given this opportunity and want nothing more than to continue to help and encourage them.  The effects of brain injury are life-long and we, as a community, must not ignore this truth.  

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

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

Thank you so much for your support!  Please help me in my efforts to encourage and support those affected by brain injury.  Without you, BIAC cannot offer the much needed services to the brain injury community in Colorado.
