BENEFITING: Brain Trauma Foundation, Inc.
EVENT DATE: Feb 17, 2013
Running has always been my hobby, but last spring I made it my goal to complete a marathon. I want my efforts to result in more than just a personal accomplishment; I want them to be far-reaching.
The Brain Trauma Foundation is a non-profit organization focused upon helping individuals who have suffered from a head injury. According to BTF, nearly 2 million individuals suffer from traumatic brain injuries every year––50,000 of which result in death, and another 80,000 lead to permant disability. Donations not only assist with treatment options, they also enable medical professionals to better understand the complexities of brain trauma, thus allowing them to implement more effective solutions. Whether it's $1/mile or just $1, your donations are much appreciated.
Proceeds will be in honor of a dear friend, Tucker Mahoney.
