Please join us for the 2016 Scarecrow Classic 5k Run and 1 Mile Walk will be held on Sunday, October 2, 2016 on the University of Maryland Baltimore County campus. This event, hosted by the Brain Injury Association of Maryland (BIAMD) will rally survivors, families, friends, and supporters around the common goal of raising awareness about brain injury within the community and providing much needed funding to support the programs and initiatives of BIAMD.
For more than a three decades, BIAMD has been able to provide help, hope, and healing to Maryland's Brain Injury community. With the generous assistance of our supporters and volunteers, we are able to provide information, resources, education and assistance to Marylanders with a brain injury, their families, and the healthcare providers who serve them.
With your help, we can and will make a difference in the lives of many. Please consider supporting our efforts through this 5k race and 1 Mile walk by participating, creating a fundraising page, and spreading the word through email and your social media connections.
THIS YEAR WE WILL BE CONTINUING OUR TRADITION OF ACKNOWLEDGING OUR SERVICE MEMBERS BOTH ACTIVE AND RETIRED. WE WOULD LIKE TO GIVE A SPECIAL INVITATION TO ALL ACTIVE SERVICE MEMBERS AND VETERANS TO BE PART OF OUR EVENT.
WE HAVE CREATED A SEPARATE RACE CATEGORY FOR MILITARY AS A WAY OF ACKNOWLEDGING THEIR SERVICE AND HONORING ALL THAT THEY DO.
Your support is very much appreciated!
