A recent article in The Blaze discusses the importance of Veterans Day and how we all should assist those who have returned from service in the military. The article discusses the signature wound from the recent wars, Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI) and also highlights the upcoming screening of Operation Resurrection, a documentary about solutions for our returning Veterans who suffer from Traumatic Brain Injury.
Resurrecting Lives Board Members were presented with a “big” check for $20,000 on October 28, 2013 as the net proceeds from the COAC’s annual clay shoot fundraiser benefiting our Foundation. Their support over the years has been essential to assist with supporting our veterans and raising awareness of the effects of Traumatic Brain Injury. Thanks again to COAC for surpassing their goal and again giving so much to our heroes. The event was held in August and you can view the tremendous showing below from those who participated.
The Foundation had 26 people who gave of their time to sell tickets for the Columbus Blue Jackets Foundation 50/50 Raffle. The volunteers were able to sell over $9,100 worth of tickets which was split with the winner and a portion will go to Resurrecting Lives to support our veterans and assisting in their participation in research for Traumatic Brain Injury. Many thanks to those who worked hard to sell tickets during the game and help our veterans.
Veteran Ryan Gleich and Dr. Gordon were featured on the November 10, 2013 airing of The Spectrum, a local TV program on NBC Channel 4 in Columbus, OH. Ryan described the effects of TBI on our veterans and Dr. Gordon outlined the TBI study being conducted at Albert Einstein College of Medicine. It is a great feature that ran just before Veterans Day and should help raise awareness about this signature wound from the most recent wars.
