Join hundreds of participants for a fun and family-friendly event. The walk route starts at our new offices in Waterbury at 1:00pm with a short .6 mile walk to the Rusty Parker Memorial Park and .6 mile walk back. Should you want to log more miles, you’re welcome to make the walk several times or utilize the walking path near the Vermont State Offices, along the Winooski River. Walk with family, friends or co-workers!
Vermont weather can be unpredictable, so dress appropriately. Walk route is wheelchair and handicapped accessible, so participants of all abilities can participate. (Completing all or part of the route is acceptable.)
When you complete your trek, enjoy a wonderful finish line celebration filled with food, drinks and entertainment. Show your support for the thousands of Vermont individuals and families affected by a brain injury, because a brain injury can happen any one… anywhere… anytime…
The Brain Injury Association of Vermont (BIAVT) has a goal of raising $35,000 this year, and with your help, we can achieve or exceed this goal. In addition to raising critical funds, we are helping to raise awareness of brain injury across the state and advocate for all Vermonter’s affected by brain injury.
Accept the Challenge!
YOU are vital to our success!
The Brain Injury Association of Vermont cannot serve those affected by brain injuries without YOUR contributions!

Where does the money go?
All money raised directly supports the Brain Injury Association of Vermont. The following are just a few examples of where these funds are distributed:
- Our BIAVT helpline continues to receive more calls each year and is staffed Monday-Friday 9-4 for Vermont referrals and resources –be it state agencies, brain injury service providers, or locating housing or food.
- Support groups remain vital to the mission of BIAVT, providing a place for survivors, family and friends, as well as providers to gather in the community for mutual support.
- We are expanding education and training statewide, devoting more staff year-round to this cause and raising awareness of brain injury.
- We also collaborate daily advocating for brain injury survivors with government agencies, non-profit organizations, other Brain Injury Associations, and community service providers.
