Join hundreds of participants for a fun and family-friendly event. The walk route will start at our offices and head up Main Street in beautiful downtown Waterbury. We’ll stop at Rusty Parker Memorial Park for our annual group photo then walk back to the office for food and fun! Should you want to log more miles, you’re welcome to make the walk several times.

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 Alliance of Vermont (BIAVT) has a goal of raising $40,000 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!
Where does the money go?
All money raised directly supports the Brain Injury Alliance 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 Alliances, and community service providers.
