Suffering from a brain injury creates such unique challenges for victims and their families. Because our brains are the core of our existence, it controls everything our body does by sending information down the super spinal cord highway. Once the brain is compromised due to an injury like a car accident or fall from heights, it can cause severe issues with our whole body.
Our Seattle brain injury attorneys at Russell & Hill, PLLC feel a special connection to the victims of brain injuries we represent. So much so, that for the third year in a row, our professional attorneys at Russell & Hill, PLLC are one of the main sponsors of the Brain Injury Alliance Of Washington’s (BIAWA) 9th Annual Walk, Run & Roll Event.
Highlights Of The Event
BIAWA is a small nonprofit organization that focuses on individuals and families who are suffering or suffered from brain injuries. Since 1982, this small organization has grown to serve more than 10,000 people a year. The organization provides academic scholarship opportunities, free brain health and wellness classes, support groups, pediatric resources, social engagement opportunities and so much more.
Every year BIAWA encourages sponsors to help invest in events like a brain injury manual, March brain injury awareness month, art shows, bike rides, galas, or the walk, run & roll event. Because several of our attorneys have personal experiences with brain injuries, Russell & Hill, PLLC felt compelled to sponsor the walk, run & roll event. As attorneys, we love fighting for justice for the people in our community. Choosing to sponsor this BIAWA event was an honor and a privilege to give back to a community that deals with incredible challenges.
Over 400 people came out to walk, run or roll around Green Lake on April 27th. Together, we wore purple shirts honoring those who are battling or surviving brain injuries. All while celebrating the lives of those who succumbed to their injuries. Partnering up with BIAWA as the main sponsor allows our law firm to encourage people to learn more about the challenges of living with a brain injury and the importance of finding a common community.
