Cheshire: Brain Injury Association plans 'Walk & Roll' fundraiser

The Brain Injury Association of Massachusetts announces the return of its annual Walk & Roll fundraiser starting at 9:30 a.m. Saturday, Sept. 9, at the Ashuwillticook Rail Trail.

Residents can register as individuals, set up a team, start a fundraising page, or provide a one-time donation. The official page for the event can be found at

One of the team captains joining this year's walk is Scott Steeves, a brain injury survivor from North Adams. Steeves suffered a brain injury at age 14 when he was struck by a truck. He has been attending BIA-MA activities since 2014 and has formed Team Shiloh this year to support fellow survivors.

BIA-MA is the first and oldest organization in the state to offer support and resources to brain injury survivors and their families. They provide prevention programs, educational trainings and legislative advocacy.
