New Date: TBD

The health and safety of our community and event participants is our number one priority. As of March 11, Ohio State has canceled all on-campus activities of student organizations through April 20th. Accordingly, the March 22nd Brain Injury Awareness 5K Run and 1 Mile Walk is CANCELLED. We are evaluating alternative solutions that will continue to foster awareness and support for the brain injury community, such as potentially rescheduling the run to Fall 2020 and/or having a virtual run option. In the event of a reschedule to Fall 2020 of the 4th annual BIA 5K and Walk, we will honor all current registrations. As stated on the RunSignup page and in our waiver, we do not offer registration refunds - all proceeds from our event directly benefit wellness support for brain injury survivors in the Columbus and central Ohio area through the Neuro Nights program.

We will provide more updates as we have them. We appreciate your patience and understanding as we continue to process and monitor these extenuating circumstances. If you have any questions, suggestions, or concerns, please direct them to brain.osu@gmail.com. Please stay safe!
