March is Brain Injury Awareness Month, recognized nationally across America.  You can help us spread the word about brain injury, by “Cycling For Brain Injury” at SoulCycle Short Hills on Wednesday, March 19, 2014 at 11:30am.

 DID YOU KNOW?

An estimated 5.3 million Americans lives with disabilities resulting from traumatic brain injury (TBI).

Every 21 seconds, one person sustains a TBI – that’s 1.7 million people per year.

About 75% of TBIs that occur each year are concussions.

Every year, there are up to 3. 8 million sports-related concussions in the U.S.

TBI can be PREVENTED!  Learn the facts!
