GOING THE DISTANCE FOR BRAIN INJURY
The first Memorial Day run was held in 1988 in honor of Amy Thompson, an incredible young woman whose will to live gave hope to all those affected by TBI.
In 2018 the Memorial Day Run, held in historic Loose Park, Kansas City, MO, was renamed Going the Distance for Brain Injury. The run continues as a tribute to the courage and determination of individuals who’ve been affected by a brain injury.
The 2022 Memorial Day Going the Distance for Brain Injury Run was held on Monday, May 30, 2022. Registration for the 2023 run will open in early January 2023. Learn more about the run by visiting biarun.org.
