Become the best version of yourself.

The experience of training and running for a marathon can parallel rehab and life after a brain injury; it requires commitment and dedication and provides many rewards and setbacks.  Nike’s Chicago Marathon training program challenges runners to cross the finish line the “best version of yourself”.  As Angela is working to become the best version of herself crossing the finish line, she recognizes that at the Midwest Brain Injury Clubhouse, brain injury survivors are working every day to become the best version of themselves after surviving their injury.

Becoming the best version of yourself requires a conscious look at who we are today, and understanding what being our best selves means. It takes perseverance, setting goals, making changes, celebrating the successes, recognizing the setbacks and correcting the path as needed. The path is not the same for everyone, and for the members at MBIC, they need your support to continue to try to be their best version. 

Let’s do this together and support brain injury survivors at MBIC, pledge your support today.
