Currently, more than 3.1 million children and adults in the U.S. live with a lifelong disability as a result of TBI and 6.4 million have a disability due to stroke. (Statistics courtsey of the Centers for Disease Control and the Heart Disease & Stroke Statistics 2010 Update At-A-Glance.). This translates into more than 95,000 Iowans living with disability from acquired brain injury. That is more than the populations of Sioux City, Waterloo, Council Bluffs, Ames or Iowa City.  

The 2016 Run, Rock, and Roll was a huge success!!
