BENEFITING: BIG LIFE CORP
EVENT DATE: Sep 09, 2016
Check out this video about the BIG Skate:
Did you know someone in the U.S. sustains a brain injury every 18-21 seconds in the United States? Lives FOREVER changed in an instant! The goal of “The BIG Skate” is to bring awareness of brain injury and its vastness to the entirety of America, encourage survivors and caregivers and raise funds for BIG Life, a 501(c)3 tax deductible, non-profit organization to build a facility on the 3 acre campus to host support groups, workshops, entertainment and open clubhouse hours. Also, funds will aid in further expanding the existing BIG Life campus projects i.e. developing the 110 foot greenhouse on campus for handicap accessible, garden therapy, making the walking trails handicap accessible. This epic athletic challenge, is a record-setting, inline skating feat in which Merideth, the founder of BIG Life, will roll through 12 states and Washington, D.C., covering over 1400 miles in 28 days, departing New Smyrna Beach, Florida on September 9 and rolling up the entire East Coast to Boston, Massachusetts. Merideth will be stopping along the way to meet people and families affected by brain injury and brain injury programs including a visit in Washington D.C. with veterans with brain injuries. The BIG Skate will be an interactive opportunity for people to join in the BIG Skate adventure.

Together, we can encourage and bring HOPE to the 2 million Americans every year impacted by brain injury, their caregivers and families. Yes, skating to 1400+ miles is ambitious, but pales in comparison to what those impacted by brain injury face everyday!!!
Thank you for being part of this EPIC adventure and making an everlasting difference in the lives of those impacted by brain injury to have a place to find community, support, solitude, peace and acceptance.
Our goal is $ 500,000, a BIG number, yes. But absolutely worth every penny to those learning to live again. Every $1 donated is BIG!
