We have a first-time surviveHEADSTRONG team — Walk Strong with Megan!

Megan is a Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI) survivor from a 2008 fall, resulting in a seizure disorder & other deficits. In September, she fell face-front on the pavement, breaking the bones in my face & teeth. These accidents gave Megan the courage not to hold back. Dance fitness is her rehabilitative therapy, while she continues to make a comeback as an instructor.

In her own words, "I'm a survivor & a fighter! The most important lesson I’ve learned over the years is that I am not alone in my recovery. I'm thankful for my support system of family, my husband, friends, & doctors who make getting out of bed possible."

If you would like to show your support for Megan's team, please make a donation on her team page:

In 2013, Alex Hargis​ suffered a severe brain injury because of skateboarding without wearing a helmet. He was transported to Rady Childrens Hospital where they placed him into a medically induced coma to help reduce the swelling and hopefully save his life. Alex spent the next 26 days in a medically induced coma, where he remained in a vegetative state even after the doctors stopped the medications. After 61 days in the hospital, Alex was discharged and he began his journey to recovery.

Once Alex was able to walk again, he and his family created Team Alex in 2014, and they have been a part of the Walk for recovery ever since. His recovery has been remarkable and he and his family are very aware of the fact that many others are often left with lifelong disabilities after suffering an injury like his.

He has created a platform talking to kids in high school and universities about the importance of wearing a helmet. Now, Alex is currently a Senior at Torrey Pines High School and plans to study psychology/cognitive neurosciences when he starts college next fall.

Scripps Health is hosting their 13th Annual Brain Injury Rehabilitation Conference on March 2-3 RIGHT HERE in San Diego at the San Diego Marriott in Del Mar!

It is designed to provide a clear understanding of the need for multidisciplinary strategies in the management of patients with brain injuries. A renowned faculty of interdisciplinary specialists will present the latest in research and outcomes from a variety of medical perspectives. A strong emphasis on the need for increased quality, efficiency, and value in response to health care reform will be a consistent theme throughout the course as we continue our quest for excellence in brain injury treatment and rehabilitation.

MANY of our professional advisory council members and a board member (Harish Hosalkar, Ralph J. Greenspan, Carl Hillier, and Andrea Schwarb) will be speaking through the 2 day event.
