Brain Injury Awareness Day 2017

Another successful Brain Injury Awareness Day has come and gone!  Each year on brain Injury Awareness Day No Limits sends a team of staff and members to the VA General Assembly in Richmond, VA to visit with the Delegates and Senators to ask for continued support for brain injury services!  For the 2nd year in a row we made dog treats for ALL of the Delegates and Senators (that is over 300 treats folks)!  Thank you to the Brain Injury Association of Virginia for hosting this special day!  Please keep reading to view our pictures from this year’s Brain Injury Awareness Day trip.

CL did his good deed for the day.  He put a quarter in the meter to prevent someone getting a ticket!  Nice job CL.
