#RunForBrainInjury

The Cisco Brewers Portsmouth 5K is one of Krempels Center's largest community fundraisers, having raised over a million dollars for the nonprofit. Krempels Center, located in Portsmouth, NH, is dedicated to improving the quality of life of people living with brain injury. Over 80% of members receive financial aid from Krempels Center to attend programs, with 50% attending for free. All proceeds from race registrations and fundraising go directly towards programming to help survivors with skill building and social connection to improve their quality of life following brain injury.

Your support now is more important than ever. On behalf of Krempels Center and our trusted partners and sponsors, we thank you for your participation!
