A brain injury is the most misunderstood, misdiagnosed, underfunded health problem our nation faces*. It impacts not only the individual but their family. In Georgia there are an average of 30,000+-* traumatic brain injuries a year which includes concussions. Many brain injuries are an invisible injury because you cannot see their injury. They look and sound ok but they are not the same person facing a lifetime of challenges, social isolation and financial hardship.
Why is a condition that seriously affects your body’s most important control center — your brain — this prominent yet hardly discussed? Want to help bring awareness to this silent epidemic and support Brain Injury Awareness? Participate in our Run / Walk for Brain Injury!
There are 3 run/walks held throughout the state of Georgia and are located in Atlanta, Augusta, and Savannah. **Scroll down to view Atlanta, Augusta or Savannah**
Help make this unseen injury seen by participating in a run / walk. Not only are people who have personally experienced brain injury invited but families, friends, professionals – anyone who wants to help raise awareness and support to the brain injury community through your participation.
Run and walk will be compatible for all – 5k for runners/race walkers, 1 mile for families, walkers or wheelchairs.
