Team NeuroHope at the Monumental Marathon!

Team NeuroHope was out in full force at last week’s Indianapolis Monumental Marathon!NeuroHope group_Marathon

A HUGE THANK-YOU goes out to our friends and family who braved the cold to participate in the race and festivities, and all of their supporters who contributed in the fundraising effort.  The total amount pledged?

A resounding grand total of $8,790! 

THAT is an incredible number that blew our initial goal out of the water, and gives us the funds necessary to purchase the $5,000 hydraulic therapy mat that has been on our wish list for quite some time.

A shout-out out to all 31 team members that walked / ran the 5K, and the half marathon in support of NeuroHope is posted below.  You are all true rock stars!

Special recognition is needed for the amazing Aika Yoshida (far right in the photo on the left).  A spinal cord injury survivor herself,  Aika walked, yes WALKED the 13.1 miles with time to spare!

We also can’t forget our volunteers who worked the finish line all morning handing out water, medals, and bananas to more than 17,000 race participants. We are overwhelmed by your support.
