The attorneys at Fuicelli & Lee, P.C., are one of the official sponsors for the Brain Injury Pikes Peak Challenge. For more than three decades, the Pikes Peak Challenge has been a flagship funding event for the Brain Injury Alliance of Colorado. The BIAC offers resources for brain injury survivors, as well as their families and care providers. The Pikes Peak Challenge for 2016 takes place on September 10th, with all the funds raised supporting the BIAC. More than half a million individuals currently live with some level of brain injury in the state of Colorado, with about 1.7 million people sustaining brain injuries across the nation each year.
The leading cause of traumatic brain injuries are falls, followed by motor vehicle collisions, being struck by an object, assaults and “other.” Males are about 1.5 times as likely to suffer a traumatic brain injury as females, and those groups at the highest risk of a TBI are 15-19 year-olds and infant to four-year-olds. Traumatic brain injuries can affect a person’s learning ability, emotions and behaviors, and can increase the likelihood of Parkinson’s disease and Alzheimer’s disease.
There are four different challenges for those participating in this years’ Pikes Peak Challenge, including:
There are aid stations on the Pikes Peak Challenge Trail, located at No Name Creek, Barr Camp, the A-Frame, Two-miles to go, One-mile to go, and at the base of the Sixteen Golden Stairs. Those requiring medical assistance can see staff members at these locations. It is recommended that each hiker take at least two liters of water for the hike; bottles can be refilled at Barr Camp.
The money raised through the Pikes Peak Challenge helps fund adventure camps and recreation programs, conferences and workshops, individualized resource navigation and support and state-wide support groups for those with brain injuries as well as their family members and caretakers. Spectators are welcome at the Pikes Peak Challenge however transportation is only provided for participants. Participants will receive lunch, a t-shirt, a participation medal and transportation for their registration fee. Are you up for the challenge?
