Description

Presented by The Brain Injury Association of Kansas and Greater Kansas City (BIAKS-GKC), the Memorial Day run is celebrating its 37th year. Formerly the Amy Thompson Run for Brain Injury, it is one of the oldest runs in the Kansas City area and attracts close to 1,000 runners and spectators of all ages each year. 

This run focuses on the successes and challenges of those affected by brain injury. It celebrates their courage and their families’ determination to move forward after a brain injury.  Every 18.5 seconds a brain injury occurs in this country. It is the number one cause of death and disability in children and young adults. Over 21,000 individuals in Kansas and the Greater KC area were affected by a brain injury last year.

Proceeds from the run help BIAKS-GKC (www.biaks.org) provide vital programming, including referral services, prevention programming, support and education for survivors, loved ones and brain injury professionals.
