Upstate Run & Roll 5K Set for March 30 to Benefit the Brain Injury Association of South Carolina

The Brain Injury Association of South Carolina (BIASC) is hosting its annual Upstate Run & Roll 5K, previously known as Run For Thought, on Saturday, March 30 from 8 to 10 a.m. at Cleveland Park in downtown Greenville, S.C.

What started as an awareness tool and opportunity for brain injury survivors’ participation, the event has grown to include participation from more than 400 brain injury survivors, caregivers, providers and other community members. The event offers two options for race partakers: a competitive 5K and a 1-mile walk/roll.

“This year’s run is quite special as we have rebranded to show inclusivity of the brain injury survivors participating in the 1-mile walk/roll,” said Joyce Davis, Executive Director of the Brain Injury Association of South Carolina. “We look forward to the possibility of expanding this event to other counties in the Upstate in the upcoming years.”

Upstate Run & Roll 5K is the annual Upstate fundraising event for BIASC, with 100 percent of the proceeds going to provide critical help and support to persons with brain injury and their families, educating the public on the risks and impact of brain injury, advocating for legislation, and improving community-based services.
