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 50,000+-* 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 annual Walk, Roll or Run for Brain Injury Awareness
Help make this unseen injury seen. 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.
