Brain Injury~ Get Involved!

Brain Star
Support * Treatment * Awareness * Research
This past weekend, Curtis and I participated in a Bowl-A-Thon hosted by the Brain Injury Association of Arizona, in conjunction with a fundraising organization called Brain Star.
Brain Star was started just a few months ago, by several very motivated and passionate TBI family members.
The Bowl-A-Thon was the first fundraising event, and it was a smashing success. We were able to raise $10,000!
I am so grateful to be able to associate with so many wonderful people in the brain injury community. It’s wonderful to see so many people rallying together to support such a wonderful cause.
I am also grateful for those dedicated family members and TBI survivors who have worked tirelessly to take a great idea and make it a reality. Otherwise, we would still just be sitting around talking about how nice it would be to start a fundraising group!

In March 2010, the group plans to host a Golf Tournament.

5.3 Million Americans –a little more than 2% of the population- currently live with disabilities resulting from brain injury.

If you are interested in donating much needed funds, please contact your local BIA, or contact me for further information about Brain Star.

    You are such a good mom. I hope all is going well with Curtis. What a fun and profitable fund raiser.
