Brain Injury Association of New York State Fundraising Event

Join me on Saturday, May 30, 2009, to walk and roll with other supporters of the Brain Injury Association of New York State in the 21st Annual Freihofer’s Community Walk in Albany, NY. This fun event gives us all the opportunity to raise funds for the Association.

Participating in the Community Walk is easy!  Just print and complete the registration form attached, or register online  Be sure to designate BIANYS as the non-profit you want to support. Once you have registered, simply ask friends, family, and co-workers to support you by contributing donations. 

Why walk for the Brain Injury Association of New York State? Because:

 Someone in this country sustains a brain injury every 21 seconds

 Brain injury is the leading killer and disabler of our young adults

 More than 5.3 million Americans, approximately two percent of the population, currently live with disabilities caused by a brain injury

 Whether a car crash, bike or scooter mishap, gun-shot, stroke, tumor, aneurism, fall, hit on the head, or IED (improvised explosive device), the impact of a brain injury lasts forever.

 Brain injury affects more than 20% of returning veterans from Iraq
and Afghanistan, making it these wars’ the “signature wound”

 The Brain Injury Association of New York State provides advocacy, information, support groups, family support services, a toll-free help line, services for veterans, education programs, and training conferences.

Please help the Association to continue to provide all these services, and more

Can’t participate? Please send a donation to support the Brain Injury Association of New York State

Checks may be made payable to BIANYS, and mailed to 10 Colvin Avenue, Albany, NY 12206. Just write “Freihofer’s” in the memo line.
