Walk For Thought: Raises funds and awareness about brain injuries

Over 100,000 Minnesotans live with a disability due to brain injury.

GOLDEN VALLEY, Minn. — 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.  It can happen in the blink of an eye through motor vehicle accidents, falls, sports concussions, active military and more. 

On September 21 at Long Lake Regional Park Pavilion in New Brighton, hundreds of walkers will join together for a celebration of life, hope and healing for the 18th Annual Walk for Thought.  Simultaneous Walks in Duluth and St. Cloud. The Walk raises awareness about brain injury and brings in donations to help families more forward through vital Alliance programs to help navigate life after brain injury. 

 The walk supports and celebrates the strength and successes of the thousands of individuals who are affected by 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 21. https://braininjurymn.org/fundraising/
