I am Bevan Oschger. Whilst travelling home from work one evening on my motorbike I was involved in a hit and run. This has left me with a severe traumatic brain injury. I am unable to work or drive but I refuse to allow this injury to get me down. I get up each morning to live another day with passion. I love life and want to inspire and motivate others.
Through many months of rehabilitation, I was referred to Justin Jeffrey for Biokinetics, Their aim is helping neurologically injured people reach their physical goals, helping a person realize their full potential, and regaining as much self-sufficiency as possible.
My mission was to walk to Cape Town to raise funds to pay for my rehab and medical bills, Justin suggested something even greater. Through Justin’s running club, Achilles, they invited me to do the New York marathon in November 2017. Achille's mission is to enable people with all types of disabilities to participate in mainstream running events. Their main objective: bring hope, inspiration and better the lives of people with disabilities, physical and psychological.
I want to give this invisible injury a voice, be an ambassador for TBI, to tell and show everyone that TBI survivors are as ordinary as the person next to you and that we have survived, we are strong and our fight is a difficult one but we will make it.
Please help me get to New York city with my caregiver to realise this dream.
