The Bachus & Schanker, LLC Cares Foundation is proud to once again sponsor John and Kathy Gleason as they scale Pikes Peak in the Pikes Peak Challenge. This annual event supports survivors of brain injuries in Colorado. Survivors, family and friends hike 13 miles and 7400 vertical feet along the Barr Trail. Each participant must raise at least $150 in donations prior to the hike and can earn prizes for donations at higher levels.
The Challenge is the major fundraising event to fund programs and services through the Brain Injury Alliance of Colorado and Memorial Health System's Think First for Kids Head & Spinal Cord Injury Prevention Program.
The Bachus & Schanker, LLC Cares Foundation works to provide support to those in the Colorado community who have been affected by life changing tragedies and we have seen many who struggle with TBI.
This organization was formed in 1980 by family and friends who saw a need in the Colorado community for support services for those affected by brain injuries. Funds from the Pikes Peak Challenge help provide these services to over two thousand survivors, families and professionals each year.
