On December 28, 2008, our beloved Kimberly A. Tudor was suddenly called to God after sustaining a brain aneurysm at home. On July 21, 2011, our cherished Karolina A. Kurka also passed away from a ruptured brain aneurysm.

Welcome to Our Website

Here you will find information about our Northern New England efforts to raise awareness about Brain Aneurysms and give support to those families that have been touched by them. We began in 2009, after the sudden death of Kim Tudor with a walk in her memory, and have been joined by the family of Karolina Kurka to add a 5K run. Other families that have lost loved ones or that survived a brain aneurysm themselves have since joined our efforts.

Along with many fundraising and awareness events, we also facilitate the monthly Maine Brain Aneurysm Support Group.

Please join us for our next important event:
