Walk for Thought
There are just a few more days until the Walk for Thought on Saturday, September 23! Online registration has closed, but it's not too late to participate; just find the registration booth at your local event and sign up. Bring your family, friends, loved ones and co-workers to the 2017 Walk for Thought and celebrate our inspiring annual family reunion with Minnesota's dynamic brain injury community!

IMPORTANT INFORMATION! Our Rochester Walk for Thought event location has changed to Quarry Hills Park! Our prior location was overbooked and so we have moved down the road. From Silver Lake Park South Shelter/Three Links Park, head East to 11th Avenue Northeast and turn Left. At 9th Street Northeast, turn right and continue to the end of 9th Street to Quarry Hill Park. Thank you so much for understanding. Please spread the word and let any team members know about the change.
