New York City Brain Injury Association Events For This Summer

The following events sponsored by the Brain Injury Association of New York State (BIANYS) will take place in the New York City area this summer:

NYC Film Screening

On June 22, join the BIANYS community at a screening of Back Walking Forward, a documentary about recovery from brain injury. The documentary captures one family’s search for a new normal in the aftermath of their son, Eric's, injury. On the unpredictable road to recovery, filled with hope and despair, the support and determination of Eric’s family plays a significant role in his progress. The film was chosen for the Sprout Film Festival in New York, a prestigious film festival with films by and about people with disabilities.

The film screening will take place at St. John's University in the Saval Auditorium at 101 Murray Street, New York, NY. Following the film, there will be a dessert reception and discussion with Eric's family.

For more information, and to register, visit the brain injury association web site or call 1-800-228-8201.

Brain Injury/ Concussion Awareness Day at Citi Field

Join hundreds of your brain injury advocates and friends and support brain injury awareness with the Brain Injury Association of New York State on Sunday, July 17th, for the first annual brain injury/ concussion awareness day at Citi Field. While the NY Mets will play the Philadelphia Phillies, BIANYS and our allies will spread the word about brain injury and concussion.

At the game, Citi Field will give away MetroCards to the first 25,000 fans, and children under 12 can run the bases after the game in the "Mr. Met Dash."

Tickets are only $42 for a seat in the promenade reserved box with the group. Handicapped-accessible seating is available in the same section.

Help BIANYS to hit a grand slam with this event by buying a block of seats. There are also some fantastic sponsorship opportunities for large groups and organizations! We also have some great benefits for individuals who sell at least 25 tickets to the game.

Order tickets and learn more about the event and sponsorship opportunities through the BIANYS website.


Together we can work to strike out brain injury!
