BENEFITING: BRAIN INJURY ASSOCIATION OF NEW YORK STATE INC
This year I will be running the 2012 ING NYC Marathon to raise money for the Brain Injury Association of New York State and to increase awareness of traumatic brain injury.
Individuals with TBI may experience many different problems including changes in physical function, thinking, cognition, and visual skills. Many problems are not always very apparent on the outside and as a result, many individuals do not receive the appropriate care or resources.
The Brain Injury Association of New York State (BIANYS) is a statewide non-profit membership organization that advocates on behalf of individuals with brain injury and their families, and promotes prevention.
Established in 1982, BIANYS provides education, advocacy, and community support services that lead to improved outcomes for children and adults with brain injuries and their families. The Association also offers a toll free Family Help Line, chapters and support groups throughout the state, prevention programs, mentoring programs, speakers bureau, a video library and a publications library. BIANYS plays a central role in the development of public policy on the federal, state and local level.
