Brain Injury Awareness Events
Brain Injury Awareness Month
Each year, March is recognized nationally as Brain Injury Awareness Month. This year alone, 2.87 million Americans will sustain an acquired brain injury. Individuals who have sustained a brain injury are often misdiagnosed, misunderstood, and under-funded.
By taking part in our Brain Injury Awareness Month campaign, you can unite with the millions of citizens living with brain injury and their families who are taking action to ensure their voices are heard.
You can help to raise awareness of brain injury – one story at a time! Share your story with us using this link, or on your own social media pages with the hashtags #biact #braininjuryawarenessmonth #usbia #braininjuryawareness and by tagging us @BrainInjuryAllianceCT. Share our brain injury awareness social media posts on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter!

Donate to BIAC and help us as we raise awareness of brain injury. BIAC relies on donations to enable us to provide support and resources to brain injury survivors, and community education and training on brain injury throughout the state. You can donate here.
Host a Community Fundraising Event
Individuals and businesses from across the state host diverse events with a common goal: to increase brain injury awareness and raise funds for BIAC. Events like progressive dinners, and tag sales benefitting BIAC are just a few examples to inspire you. You can even host a Facebook Fundraiser to support BIAC! The type of event you host is only limited to your imagination! Find out more about holding your own fundraising event.
