The month of March in Oklahoma is TBI Raiders Month. TBI Raiders Week is part of it. I would like the college campuses tot take the lead on this. The week is to focus on what is being done to HELP those living with a Traumatic Brain Injury, the different programs that states in this country have established to improve life for survivors, the legislation that states have passed that has to do with TBI, promote TBI Raiders, and I would like there to be a dinner to celebrate the survival of those who have sustained a TBI. This doesn't have to be done the same week on campuses but do coordinate the event at http://www.setbb.com/tbiraiders.
About TBI Raiders Volunteer Service

To not just see but also help students and young adults who have sustained a Traumatic Brain Injury succeed in both school and life. To give students living with and without disabilities the chance as well an opportunity to not only work together with their peers who live with a TBI but to also learn from one another and make their schools or the communities that they live in a whole lot better. 2 focuses on service: survivors and families
Traumatic Brain Injury affects 1.7 million Americans every year. This is more than what Breast Cancer, HIV/AIDS, Spinal Cord Injuries, and Multiple Scelrosis will affect COMBINED. This is to bring more awareness on the disability and at the same time create more opportunities for students and young adults who live with and without a Traumatic Brain Injury.
This is a volunteer service that both students with AND without disabilities would have the opportunities to gain job skills, leadership skills, become better managers of their time, make a difference in someone else's life, and so much more. This is to create a better life for students and young adults who live with a Traumatic Brain Injury.
We will be working on improving the workforce and education starting here in Stillwater then branching out from there. We are looking at setting up trainings, doing presentations, and having townhall style meetings with those who live with a PTSD & TBI.
