Members, staff and Board of Trustees of Opportunity Project thank you for your support of and participation in Brain Injury Awareness Month 2017.  Because of you, we raised over $376,000 to support brain injury awareness programs and prevention. Your much appreciated support enables Opportunity Project to provide support services for brain injury survivors who have limited to no source of funding.

We launched Brain Injury Awareness Month on March 1, 2017 with Mayor Cheryl Burstein of Millburn who issued a proclamation declaring March 2017 Brain Injury Awareness Month. We wore green and provided brain injury prevention information at the Millburn Free Public Library in observance of Congressional Brain Injury Awareness Day. Thank you Mr. Banick, Director of the Millburn Free Public Library for your support.

Annual Blue Jean Day was once again our most popular event. The Blue Jean Day program invites companies to promote brain injury awareness and raise funds for OP’s brain injury programs. OP members (and staff) had a wonderful day at NJPAC sharing experiences and answering questions about brain injury. Thank you to this year’s Blue Jean Day coordinators and participants at: NJPAC, The Fidelco Group, Lester Schwab Katz & Dwyer LLP, Fox Rothschild LLP, Greenberg Traurig and Mandelbaum Salsburg P.C.
