Brain Injury Florida, Affiliate of Brain Injury Association of America, Announces Its’ First Fundraising Race, 5K Run, Walk & Roll, to support Brain Injury Awareness, Education and Outreach, Treatment & Support

ORLANDO, FL (November 7, 2023) – Brain Injury Florida announced today the kick-off of their first fundraising race, 5K Run, Walk & Roll, taking place in Orlando on January 27, 2024. Brain Injury Florida is a chartered state affiliate of the Brain Injury Association of America, which works to provide advocacy, support, and education to those affected by brain injury and their caretakers.

The 5k race will be the first active charity event the non-profit has held to help drive public awareness of the foundation and their goals, after launching in 2022.

“We’re excited to give our supporters a purpose to be active in this cooler weather, and to support a cause that helps almost 900,000 Floridians living with Brain Injury” says Denny Armington, founder and Board President. “When a brain injury happens, there’s so much information out there which can be overwhelming. This event will allow us to develop a support line for caretakers and survivors to reach out to when they need information.”

Over 225,000 brain injuries are sustained each year by children and adults Of that number, 28,337 injuries are Floridians 19 years old and younger, who have acquired a sports related brain injury each year. Although the injury is not visible, it is a life-long disease that impacts each person in a different way. No two brain injuries are the same, so finding the right treatment and care team is important for lifetime rehabilitation.
