GTD for Brain Injury, May 27, 2019. Formerly the Amy Thompson Run for Brain injury, this year’s run calls attention to the more than 21,000 individuals in Kansas & Greater Kansas City area affected by a brain injury yearly.

This year’s 10K race will be part of the I Run KC Challenge that includes 50k, 100k and 200k options, and is sponsored by KC Running Company. Other Memorial Day race categories include a 5K, 1.5 mile Walk for Thought and fun4kids event. Early bird registration ends March 15th, 2019.

Since 1988, the Brain Injury Association of Kansas and Greater Kansas City (BIAKS) has sponsored a family-friendly Memorial Day Run, which has raised funds for community education and to help provide programming for those affected by a traumatic brain injury. Whether it’s as simple as a donation, volunteering or participating in the run, Going the Distance for Brain Injurt needs and charishes your continued support.

The Amy Thompson Run for Brain Injury began in 1987 with few hundred participants. Last year, the 30th year, the ATR garnered close to 2000 participants. The run continues this year with a new name, but the same objective-- promoting brain injury awareness and prevention. Whether it’s making a donation, sponsoring a team or running the 10K, 5K or Walk for Thought, your involvement makes a difference. Click on the links below to get started. Thank you!
