Bowling for Brain ’11 is HUGE success for BIAAZ!

The Brain Injury Association of Arizona is one of those special organizations that knows how to help a family overcome the unimaginable affects of TBI, educate decision makers to change safety policies, and provide awareness and unwavering support to the community, all at the same time.  Every day, they inspire hope, strength, and the power of teamwork!

Last weekend, the BIAAZ held their 2nd Annual Bowl for Brain Injury event at four Brunswick bowling alleys across Phoenix and Tucson, Arizona.  Over 100 teams registered to bowl and collect sponsorships- many with a goal of over $1,000!

We (AdvisaCare) had a team in both Phoenix and Tucson this year and raised about $4,500 for the BIAAZ.  In Tucson, our team included a doctor and her son, PBA Hall-of-Famer Paul Colwell, a father and son, and Robert McQuoid, AdvisaCare Arizona Regional Manager.  In Phoenix, our team included our CEO, Kris Skogen and family, Tony Paul and family, and yours truly, Ashleigh Justice.

By the end of the day, the Brain Injury Association of Arizona was able to raise over $100k in gross sponsorships for valuable programs & services and for their annual camp, Kamp Kan Do.  We are very proud to be a part of such a great cause and we thank the BIAAZ for their continuing support of the TBI community!
