March is Brain Injury Awareness Month!

We kicked things off this past Sunday with our Annual Survivor Celebration picnic with 150 in attendance!

It turned out to be a beautiful day and we enjoyed delicious food this year by Picnic Specialties who did a wonderful job of setting up, cooking and feeding our large group.

Everyone really enjoyed trying out the recumbent bikes that Spokes Fighting Strokes brought out again this year. Their inventory has grown, giving more people a chance to take a ride.

Thank you to the following organizations who spent their Sunday with us providing other fun recreational and educational opportunities.

▪ Ability360
▪ Arizona Adaptive Watersports
▪ Arizona Disabled Sports
▪ Arizona Spinal Cord Injury Association
▪ Barrow Connection
▪ Brain Injury Alliance of Arizona
▪ Camp with a Ramp
▪ Spokes Fighting Strokes
▪ The Next Step Peer Mentoring & More

Liberty Wildlife was new this year and provided a fantastic presentation. We have already had great feedback and requests to have them back again next year.

Some of the photos of the day are shown below and more can be found on our Facebook page.

If you have any photos of the day that you would like to share with us that we might use on our year end video, please e-mail them to: ralcorn@wmforward.org Thank you!
