For March’s Brain Injury Awareness Month, NCRBI participated in “Blue Jeans for Brain Injury” and hosted a “Walk-a-Thon”. All told, 54 NCRBI staff and 30 Resident-Neighbors participated, raising $700 to be donated to BIANYS’ “Walk for Brain Injury”. Laleen Ali from BIANYS (Brain Injury Association of NYS) was present for our Walk-a-Thon and was impressed with the drive and motivation of our Resident-Neighbors and their recovery.

NCRBI was represented at the 1st Annual Brain Injury Awareness Advocacy Day in Albany, NY. Therapeutic Educators Christine Lawlor and  Mark Ingoglio along with (4) Resident-Neighbors made the trip to advocate on behalf of survivors of brain injuries and their families. Their trip was very successful.

A big thank you to Christine Lawlor and Mark Ingoglio for all their hard work in coordinating the “Walk-a-thon” and trip to Albany.  And another big thank you to our Center’s Administrator, Seth Rinn and our Resident Council for purchasing the Brain Injury Awareness t-shirts for all our “Walk-a-Thon” walkers and Resident-Neighbors.

Over all a HUGE success for all!
