Brain Bolt 5K

October 7 @ 9:00 am - 12:00 pm

$30

The Third Annual Brain Bolt 5K Run/Walk will kickoff at the Carmel Gazebo at Civic Square in Carmel. This year’s race will once again benefit the treatment and care of traumatic brain injuries.

Brain Bolt is a family-friendly event that will feature musical entertainment, food trucks, and activities for kids on the gazebo’s grass lawn. Regional trauma specialists will educate attendees on preventing head and spine injuries, and GCBS’ MEGA Brain—an inflatable, interactive, walk-through exhibit—will also be on display.

Each year, more than 50,000 people in Indiana sustain traumatic brain injuries. The immediate, life-saving efforts of the neurotrauma teams at local Level 1 Trauma Centers provide these patients the best hope for surviving and coping with their injuries. All proceeds of the Brain Bolt 5K will support the efforts of the Neurosurgery Foundation at Goodman Campbell to help fund pilot research projects in traumatic brain injury, a follow-up clinic for patients for after-injury care, and will support GCBS’ neurotrauma databases.

We hope you can help make it a big success!
