Participants can run, walk, or roll their wheel chair or recumbent bike through the park, with all proceeds used to provide free resource counseling, education programs, and online support to brain injury victims across the state of Utah.
This year we hope to welcome special guest, brain injury survivor Daniel Mollino, who started a 3,650 mile bicycle ride on March 30, 2015 from New Jersey, with his sights set on San Francisco. His intent on making this heroic journey is simply to create awareness about brain injury and its sometime invisible effects on those who suffer. Daniel’s cycling is slated to bring him through Salt Lake City during our annual 5K Run, Walk and Roll!!
