Because of our incredible community, we were able to raise $111,657 during MindfulMarch 2018. This was made possible through the collective generosity of 929 donors, 680 people in our Meditation Challenge, and 114 people who fundraised through classes, events, and sharing their story across the US, Canada, Australia, and the United Kingdom.
We are truly humbled by this unprecedented level of support and what it means for the traumatic brain injury (TBI) community we serve. By exceeding our goal, we are now able to launch 10 new studio partners who will offer our free Yoga program to over 520 people impacted by TBI each year. HUGE thanks to everyone involved for this opportunity to expand our reach, and for helping us bring more awareness to TBI, an often invisible injury.

Every 13 seconds, someone in the U.S. sustains a TBI. Unlike most injuries, TBI often leads to lifelong physical, behavioral, and emotional challenges that are largely invisible. As a result, many people affected by TBI lack the support and understanding they deserve. MindfulMarch is a global campaign in honor of Brain Injury Awareness Month. Our goal is to engage thousands across the world to raise awareness for TBI and funds for our growing Yoga program, which supports the TBI community through research-driven, free and accessible yoga classes.
We believe that our greatest healing starts from awareness. With greater awareness about the impact of TBI, our society is better able to understand and compassionately respond to this community’s needs.
Yoga and meditation are among the most powerful tools to cultivate awareness. These practices allow us to explore what is often invisible--our emotions, thoughts, beliefs--that underlie our wellbeing. When we bring these invisible layers to light, we can ignite our potential for healing and more deeply connect with ourselves and our community.
