Event description

Description


This Austin, Texas event hosted by Derek Pang will be fundraising screening of the documentary “The Crash Reel”,
which is about US Olympian snowboarder Kevin Pearce who suffered a near fatal traumatic brain injury (TBI) while training for the 2010 winter Olympics. Kevin’s remarkable resilience has inspired millions through the HBO documentary, The Crash Reel. This experience brought to light the significance and prevalence of TBI and led to his founding of the LoveYourBrain Foundation. Here is a link to The Crash Reel trailer: https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=2KkFZ-QC53Q

The mission of the LoveYourBrain Foundation is to improve the quality of life of people affected by traumatic brain injury through programs that build community and foster resilience. They promote a positive approach to brain injury prevention and healing and their programs are designed to build community, foster resilience, and help people understand the importance of loving your brain.

This mission is particularly important and meaningful to fundraiser screening organizer Derek Pang, because in 2010 Derek sustained a severe traumatic brain injury which left him in a coma for 3.5 days, retrograde amnesia, notable post-traumatic amnesia and a long road of recovery where he used Yoga as his primary healing modality. A former LoveYourBrain Yoga 6-week FUNdamentals program participant, Derek is now fully recovered and a certified LoveYourBrain Yoga teacher and ambassador.
