BURKE MEDICAL RESEARCH INSTITUTE'S TRAIN THE BRAIN team is so excited to be represented in the 2015 NYC Marathon! Train the Brain's mission is three-fold: (1) promoting brain health through exercise; (2) funding research and treatment for brain repair; and (3) raising awareness about brain injury, stroke, and AVM.
TRAIN THE BRAIN is inspired by a marathoner and father of 2 who survived a massive hemorrhagic stroke caused by a ruptured AVM at the age of 37. His recovery has inspired thousands of people to exercise more, fundraise, and make brain injury, stroke and AVM part of the national dialogue. Every dollar we raise will be used to advance the science of brain repair: too many people are living with disabilities.
Help us make the world better for people with brain injuries. Our 2014 team of 14 people raised nearly $88,000 -- help us meet our goal of raising $100,000!
