In 1984, a small group of families and providers came together to advocate for services for persons with brain injury and their families. Celebrating 33 years of service, The Minnesota Brain Injury Alliance is the only statewide nonprofit dedicated to serving the 100,000 Minnesotans who live with a disability due to brain injury, their loved one and the professionals who work with them. . Over the decades, the Alliance has developed from an advocacy driven organization, to one that focuses on both advocacy and direct service.
Over 100,000 Minnesotans live with a disability due to brain injury, but that’s just a number unless it’s personal – your parent, child, spouse, sibling or you. On September 23 at Long Lake Regional Park Pavilion in New Brighton, hundreds of walkers will join together with sports celebs Randall McDaniel and Jordan Leopold and KFAN’s Paul Allen for a celebration of life, hope and healing for the 16th Annual Walk for Thought. Simultaneous Walks in Duluth, Rochester and St. Cloud. Donate and walk to support and celebrate the strength and successes of the thousands of individuals who are affected by brain injury. Funds raised support vital Alliance programs and services that help individuals and families navigate life after a brain injury. Registration at 9:00 am, pre-Walk program at 9:45 am and Walk starts at 10:00 am. Together we can make a difference on September 17. Click here to register or for more information.
