The LoveYourBrain (LYB) Foundation is a non-profit organization that aims to improve the quality of life for people affected by traumatic brain injury—from concussion to severe injury—through programs that build community. LoveYourBrain embodies a positive approach to brain injury prevention and recovery by connecting, educating and empowering people to promote a brain healthy lifestyle.
A PERSONAL JOURNEY NOW A GLOBAL MISSION
Kevin Pearce was at the top of his sport as a world class professional snowboarder in 2009 when he sustained a traumatic brain injury while training for the 2010 Vancouver Winter Olympics. Kevin’s road to recovery has brought to light his potential to transform the experience of traumatic brain injury (TBI) into a source of inspiration, education and awareness. Using the visibility generated from his success as a professional snowboarder, the international acclaim achieved by his award winning HBO Documentary “The Crash Reel” and his subsequent public speaking platform, Kevin has co-founded a movement called “LoveYourBrain.”
Together with his brother Adam Pearce, they created the LoveYourBrain Foundation, a non-profit organization that aims to improve the lives of people affected by a TBI through yoga, meditation and mindfulness programs to provide community and optimize the health of everyone they can reach. Their opportunity is to support people with the resources to adapt to their new normal and accept who they are now. While each person’s story is unique, the universal pathway to healing relies on community and a resilient mindset.
