The Love Your Brain Foundation was started by Adam Pearce and his brother Kevin Pearce, professional snowboarder, after Kevin suffered a severe Traumatic Brain Injury while practicing for the 2010 Winter Olympics (the documentary "Crash Reel" showing Pearce's crash and what happened after was so powerful!). Such injuries are typically pretty isolating. The mission of "Love Your Brain" is to implement programs designed to create community, foster resilience, and help people understand the importance of loving your brain.
