Help Raise Awareness of Brain Injury!
The 7th Annual Scarecrow Classic has two goals: 1) to raise funds for BIAM’s Maryland Brain Injury Resource Center, and 2) to raise awareness of brain injury in Maryland. In 2011, the BIAMresponded to over 6100 calls, emails, and office visits. It is critical in Maryland to bring attention to individuals with brain injury and their families in order to increase funding for needed services. This is where you come in. We ask that you gather a team of family members and friends to participate in the Scarecrow. Ask neighbors and colleagues to sponsor you and your team. We hope that you will take this opportunity to show your support for BIAM!
