On March 2, 2006, Ashlyn Dyer was the victim of a hit and run accident while running through the Presidio
in San Francisco. Tragically, Ashlyn passed away 10 days later as a result of her severe Traumatic Brain Injury.

Over 50,000 people die from Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI) each year, and another 5.3 million Americans are
living with disabilities from TBI. We became painfully aware of the reality of TBI during Ashlyn’s accident,
and the devastating effects in can have. We learned that only a handful of hospitals across the country have
adequate resources to treat TBI and research funding are limited.

An avid marathoner, Ashlyn Dyer’s drive and love of life inspired those close to her to found the
Ashlyn Dyer Foundation. Like most Americans, we were unaware of the devastating personal and financial
impact of TBI. By supporting the Ashlyn Dyer Foundation, you can help raise the awareness of TBI,
increase TBI funding, improve access to TBI care.
