OUR CHARITY PARTNER:

1 in 5 Americans will suffer from a Traumatic Brain Injury.

The Brain Injury Recovery Foundation is a 501(c)(3) Non-Profit Organization whose mission is to support those who have suffered Brain or Neurological Injuries as well as their family, friends, and caregivers by providing programs for Care, Financial Assistance and Rehabilitation built to meet their specific needs so that they can achieve their goals.

OUR STORY:

In 2009, The “Quarter Marathon” idea was created by Chris Lieberman. He is also the founder of the Route 66 Marathon, Center of the Universe Festival, and other events and businesses. 

2016, Chris was working in his warehouse when he suddenly fell off a ladder approx 10′ feet to the concrete floor. Chris suffered a Severe Traumatic Brain Injury. 

Kim (Chris’ girlfriend), Ashton, and Aldyn (Chris’ daughters) fought to keep Chris alive and stayed by his side. Chris was in a coma. During this time, his family stayed by his side and advocated on his behalf. Kim, Ashton, and Aldyn did their best to remain positive, but the doctors continued to provide a  “worst-case-scenario” prognosis. They made a pact; regardless of if Chris remained in a coma, they would not entertain any prognosis other than recovery. They were ready to fight!

Chris slowly began to wake from his coma and began a 1.5-year recovery process in multiple hospitals and rehab centers across the country. Once he was aware again, the first thing he wanted to do was to return to work and the events he created and loved so much, but first, he had to go through the rehabilitation process and relearn how to do everything from feeding himself, reading, writing, daily tasks and when those goals were accomplished he moved onto his next goals of working on his mobility by learning to walk again.

2018-2019 Were the hardest. Chris was still recovering and started giving up hope. He wasn’t able to be independent, walk, or work (his true passion). It was a very dark time, but Kim, Ashton, and Aldyn remained faithful to their pact and to Chris’ recovery. They didn’t come this far to let him give up! 

After 3 years, they continued to search for more ways to help Chris walk again. They found React, an Activity-Based Therapy Center in Dallas Texas, and began driving Chris to therapy in Dallas (4.5 hours away) every week for over 8 months. Their perseverance paid off. Chris was able to ditch his wheelchair and walk independently again!

Feeling inspired by his recovery, they founded the Brain Injury Recovery Foundation to combat the severe lack of resources available to individuals and the families of neurological injuries. Through their programs for Caring, Advocacy, Awareness, Financial Guidance, Prevention, and the building of DEFY Neuro Rehab, Oklahoma’s 1st Activity-Based Therapy Center, they plan to change the TBI world and offer the services that individuals with neurological and spinal injuries, their families, and caregivers so desperately need.

2020- We have relaunched the Quarter Marathon as a Virtual race so that everyone, in every capacity, can participate!

Every 9 seconds someone suffers a neurological injury.

By participating in the Quarter Marathon, you will help raise much-needed awareness and support for those who have suffered from this devastating injury that claims its victims and steamrolls their family in the process.
