7th Anniversary/Bike Helmet Giveaway

To celebrate our 7th Anniversary, the Traumatic Brain Injury Resource Center is holding a bike helmet giveaway on Saturday, May 21, 2022 from 10 AM to 2 PM. Helmets will be available first come, first served and will be individually fitted by trained staff. In addition, we will be raffling off 2 bicycles. Tickets will be available throughout the event, and the drawing will be held at its close. The winner need not be present to win. The event is sponsored by the Traumatic Brain Injury Resource Center, Mercy Health, and Wersell’s Bike Shop.

While helmets cannot eliminate the risk of a head injury, they do reduce the risk of severe injury according to the Center for Disease Control and Prevention.

The Center will also hold its fleece store open during the event. All fleece blankets will be $7 off in honor of our anniversary.

We continue to welcome donations of non-perishable food items and toiletries to stock our pantry. Your donations support brain injury survivors in our area.

Brain Injury Awareness Month

Join us every Saturday in March between 10 AM and 2 PM for an Open House.   Learn about the Center’s offerings and meet fellow survivors and caregivers.  Help us restock our emergency pantry with your donation of a non-perishable food item or toiletry.  Everyone donating five items will receive a free TBIRC t-shirt while supplies last!

A Conversation Between Brain Injury Survivors

A Conversation Between Brain Injury Survivors
