On behalf of the 2019 Committee - Thank you for coming and/or donating to the KAT-Walk & Karo-5K for Brain Aneurysm Awareness. A great turn out of over 375 people (including 36 survivors) enjoyed a wonderful day, all in support of the Brain Aneurysm community.
To all the many families that came and participated, either to celebrate their survival or to remember their lost ones – thank-you for joining us and we hope this event gave you the opportunity to: “Share your Tears, Remember with Love, and to Walk & Run to Honor”.
We thank David Colby Young from Maine Running Photos for the hundreds of pictures published HERE
Over the next few weeks, here and on our active Facebook page, we’ll be publishing pictures and retrospectives of this meaningful day for so many.
For those new to our website, we’d like to acquaint you with some background. The Maine Brain Aneurysm Awareness Committee (MBAAC) was formed in 2009 and is a group of committed volunteers that seek to remember and honor our loved ones lost to or having survived a brain aneurysm. Our mission is to provide support to the brain aneurysm community, raise public awareness regarding early detection and treatment and to help fund research. Our ultimate goal is to help save lives and improve the quality of their lives!
The MBAAC organizes the highly successful annual KAT-Walk and Karo-5K for Brain Aneurysm Awareness, held in September on Portland’s Back Cove. We helped form and provide logistical support to the Maine Brain Aneurysm Support Group that meets monthly at MMC. We have conducted many Dance and Dine for Awareness events and participated in a myriad of health related conferences and resource fairs. Since it’s inception, the MBAAC has raised and donated over $120,000 to help fund research, education and awareness.
