Alabama Head Injury Foundation staff, volunteers and clients utilized a variety of ways in promoting greater awareness of the challenges faced by TBI survivors, the services AHIF Provides to help those in need, and prevention initiatives. Here are some of our Awareness Month initiatives!
Alabama Head Injury Foundation was proud to partner with Home Depots across Central Alabama in March, where we hosted three support group meetings. Many thanks to the Hoover Galleria Home Depot, the Oxford Home Depot and the Tuscaloosa Home Depot for making these support group meetings possible!
Reading to Children
to come and read Elvin: The Elephant Who Forgets to their children. It is a book about an elephant who suffers a brain injury when a tree branch falls on his head, and the struggles and successes he has following his injury.
TBI Memory Walk
Our Mobile group organized a traumatic brain injury memory walk so supporters could walk in memory, or honor, of someone we lost to TBI or who is living with TBI. The group came together on March 18th for the walk, and chose to do this in memory of an AHIF client who was tragically killed when she was struck by a drunk driver while trying to cross a street in her wheelchair. AHIF hopes the Memory Walk will become an annual event and spread to other cities across Alabama.
