|Brain Injury Association of Vermont (BIAVT) announces its 11th annual Walk for Thought. The May 18th event will support services for Vermonters who have survived brain injuries and their families. More than 3,500 of our Vermont friends, neighbors and family members will sustain a brain injury this year. Your support of The Brain Injury Association of Vermont (BIAVT) provides desperately needed funding for the BIAVT’s help line, education and prevention programs, and support groups for Vermonters living with the effects of brain injuries.
Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI) is sometimes called ‘a silent epidemic. People can look fine, but still have many serious symptoms, some of which are never recognized or treated. We’ve made progress toward reducing the risk of sports-related concussions through education and outreach, but we have a long way to go.
BIA-Vermont invites all brain injury survivors, family members and the public to get involved. 100% of the funds raised in the event stay in Vermont. More information is available online at www.biavt.org, calling 1-877-856-1772, or by email at: firstname.lastname@example.org. Participants will walk ½, 1, or 3 miles through Burlington’s beautiful Oakledge Park and bike path along the lakeshore. The route is wheelchair-accessible.
