Join the "More Than My Brain Injury" Campaign
Despite the pandemic, people are still experiencing brain injuries. Schurig Center has seen an increase in the number of people reaching out for help this year, and the number of our clients living on a low income has increased to 75% of our clients.
This March, in honor of Brain Injury Awareness Month, Schurig Center is inviting our supporters to rally their friends, family, and networks to help us raise $20,000. Few services are available in the community to help people adjust to life changes after a brain injury. By starting a fundraiser or donating, you'll be providing scholarship funds that enable us to provide rehabilitation, education, and support to all who need us - regardless of their financial resources. You'll be letting brain injury survivors know they are 'seen' and that they are not alone. Plus, you'll help your friends feel good about doing good!
Starting a fundraiser is easy to do, and it's fun. We'll even give you the tools you'll need to make a difference. Ready to start your fundraiser? Great! Just click the "Start Fundraising" button. Prefer to just donate? Thank you! Click the "Donate" button to make your gift.
Special thanks to Kim and Jay Hancher for generously pledging the first $1,000 towards our goal!
Why "More Than My Brain Injury?"
Many people with disabilities have their lives defined for them. Brain Injury Awareness Month's 2021 theme is "More Than My Brain Injury." This campaign gives individuals a chance to tell their own stories, change the narrative of their lives, and increase understanding of what it's like to live with the effects of a brain injury. If you haven’t seen it yet, we invite you to watch “New Normal,” an 8-minute film by filmmaker Andrew Hida about Pam and Jeff’s stories.
Thank you for helping us improve lives and abilities!
