THE STORY:

I am running in the Austin Marathon's 5K to raise money for an amazing non-profit here in Central Texas, HOPE4MINDS. I have had the pleasure of working with HOPE4MINDS through my job with the Office of Acquired Brain Injury (OABI) and am so inspired by the work they do. HOPE4MINDS fosters hope and enriches the lives of children with an acquired brain injury through support and education. HOPE4MINDS provides guidance, advocacy and financial support for these children and their families. 

I am running in honor of George Benschoter, an inspiring young man who helped OABI create the Navigating the Brain Maze video series. At age 12, George had a choking accident and suffered a hypoxic brain injury. George and his mother, Maureen, shared their story which continually provides hope and guidance to the families that watch OABI's videos. I am proud to run in honor of their amazing perseverance and strength.

Brain injury is more common than you think - one person sustains a brain injury every 10 seconds. While we never think we will be affected, it can happen to anyone, anywhere, and at any time. Please join me in supporting HOPE4MINDS by donating today!  Even just $5 can make a difference in the lives of a children who have sustained a brain injury and their families!
