Hanover, MA (PRWEB) April 22, 2011
The Brain Aneurysm Foundation, the nation’s only nonprofit organization solely dedicated to providing critical awareness, education, support and research funding to reduce the incidence of brain aneurysm ruptures, has announced the launch of its new fundraising organization, Team BrainPOWER.
Team BrainPOWER was founded in 2010 by Cory Will of Bristow, VA. The idea originated after Will’s wife, Danielle, suffered a ruptured brain aneurysm in February of 2010. During her three week stay in the Neuroscience Intensive Care Unit following surgery, family and friends scrambled to understand what happened to Danielle and why. The vast majority of the answers and support they received came from The Brain Aneurysm Foundation. As Danielle recovered, Will formed Team BrainPOWER as a way of thanking The Brain Aneurysm Foundation for its support and to help raise funds for brain aneurysm research and awareness.
BrainPOWER Team members use the power of giving to make a difference in the lives of those affected by brain aneurysms. From running a marathon to hosting a cocktail party in honor or memory of a loved one, BrainPOWER Team members will help to fund the vital work of The Brain Aneurysm Foundation and bring more education and awareness, support and research focused on reducing the incidence of brain aneurysm ruptures.
The newly launched BrainPower website can be found at http://bafound.donorpages.com/BRAINPOWER/. Here, users can create their own personalized fundraising website, learn about The Brain Aneurysm Foundation and interact with other Team members to share ideas and success stories.
