Why Take the Challenge?

Bill Levis, parent of a survivor

Our son had a severe brain injury 13 years ago and BIAC has been a lifesaver. It gives us support, guidance and information. Most of all, it provides fellowship. I don’t know where we would be without it.

Thomas Martin, survivor and volunteer

Speaking as a brain injury survivor and PPC volunteer, my motto is to “always stay faithful to yourself and never give up.” This will be my 20th year as a volunteer and every year I’m honored to give the participants their medal as they summit Pikes Peak. I have walked their path, recovery is hard but keeping going, put one foot in front of the other and you will succeed.

Maria Martinez, survivor

BIAC has provided me with support when I was in need and for that I am grateful. The journey that I have experienced with BIAC has been an extension of my rehabilitation. I have continued to grow and have come to terms with who I am as a person with a BI and for that I am grateful. I have always been competitive so when I see the words “Are you Up for the Challenge?” I say “YEA I AM!”
