THE STORY:

Growing up I was always super active, playing sports such as soccer, lacrosse, gymnastics, and horseback riding. Although, I am relatively new to running, I recently ran in my first half marathon in New York City. It was such an incredible experience, and it was so exciting to see my brother “Ryan” at the finish line cheering me on. Only minutes after crossing the finish line I was already thinking about signing up for my next race.

Only a few days later I was offered a chance to run in the NYC Marathon on behalf of the Brain Injury Association. With this subject being so close to my heart, I was happy to accept. My older brother William “Ryan” Tawpash was in a serious motorcycle accident on his 21st birthday. He suffered from a traumatic brain injury and broke his back. With him being in ICU for 10 days it was extremely scary for me and my family. While Ryan lied in his bed for several months he began painting on his walls as a form of healing. It has been a very long journey towards his recovery. Now four years later, Ryan has learned to use art as an expression to share his journey and encourage others. I wore his custom “Tawpash” tee-shirt in my first race with his lion logo on it. This stands for courage and symbolizes “never giving up”. I am so proud to be a part of this team for the Brain Injury Association of New York; helping to raise awareness for people like my brother Ryan and others that have suffered from brain injuries.  I appreciate all of your support.
