MEDFIELD, Mass. - BostonChron -- MEDIA: Interviews are available in advance and at the event.

Life Goes On After TBI (Traumatic Brain Injury) will host their inaugural fundraiser event, Life Goes On Foot & Paw Trail Run, on Sunday June 11, 2023 at Rocky Woods in Medfield MA.

Participants can join us to run or walk a 5k, run a 10K, or run or walk with your dog (attached by a harness) in a 2.5 miles canicross.

This event will be produced by Sun Multisport Events and 100% of the proceeds will be donated to Life Goes On After TBI, a 501(c)3 charity that supports the survivors of traumatic brain injuries (TBI) by fundraising, educating and distributing grants to help offset the expense of treatments and therapies that support a TBI survivor's recovery journey. To register go to https://runsignup.com/Race/MA/Medfield/LifeGoes.... Volunteer and sponsorship opportunities are available.

A canicross is a combination of the words "canine" and "cross-country." Traditionally, a canicross is running with your dog on hiking trails where the dog wears a harness specifically made for canicross and the person is attached to the harness with an elastic line and a waist belt. The equipment makes the sport hands-free and the harness is constructed for the comfort and the safety of both the dog and the runner. Participants in the Life Goes On Foot & Paw Trail Run may choose to run with their dog competitively in the canicross with the proper equipment or enjoy participation in the event with a more casual walk with their dog on a leash.

About Life Goes On After TBI

Maddie Walter's life changed dramatically on May 8, 2015 at the age of 16 when she fell 30 feet from a rock outcropping and suffered a severe and extensive traumatic brain injury (TBI). She was in a coma for 2 weeks and in the ICU for a month at Children's Hospital in Boston, MA and then in rehab for 3 months at Spaulding Rehabilitation Hospital in Charlestown, MA.

Life Goes On After TBI was created by Maddie and her family to pay forward the support they were fortunate to receive, to give back to the TBI community and to offer hope, inspiration and financial assistance to other TBI survivors. Life Goes On After TBI is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization and all donations are tax deductible. Visit the Life Goes On After TBI website at www.lgoaftertbi.com or email at info@lgoaftertbi.com.
