Hundreds of walkers and their supporters are expected at Seneca Park, 2222 St. Paul St., Rochester, on Sept. 15 to raise money and awareness about brain injuries.
This year’s annual 1-mile Family Fun Walk will honor Judson Oot, who sustained a traumatic brain injury in a motorcycle accident and had to relearn many activities. Oot died in 2014.
In addition to the Rochester event, hundreds of other supporters are anticipated at simultaneous events in the Hudson Valley and Long Island.
“Our March On for Brain Injury is a way for individuals, families and friends to come together to raise awareness about brain injuries, and to raise money to support our programs and services and other important efforts in this field,” said Eileen Reardon, executive director of the Brain Injury Association of New York State.
Registration starts at 8 a.m. at the Eagle Pavilion in Seneca Park. The walk starts at 10 a.m.
T-shirts are available for the first 200 people to register. Family-friendly activities include music, giveaways, prizes and local vendors. Registration is $35 for adults, $20 for ages 4-12 and free for ages 3 and younger.
