Walk for Thought

Walk For Thought celebrates the accomplishments of individuals affected with brain injuries while raising awareness and funds for the Brain Injury Association of Kansas. All funds raised stay in our state to provide resources, support and information to thousands of survivors and their families.

1 in 10 individuals will be touched by brain injury at some point in their lives. Brain injury can occur  anytime, anywhere, and to anyone. Let’s do our part to honor those who have passed or are still on the recovery journey.
