The Avielle Foundation + Athlete = TAF’lete

Every year we have motivated Brain Health Champions who commit to crucible events. These are events or goals that push your personal limits, test our fortitude, and provoke suffering. Authentic change is a product of suffering, and the outcome of these crucible events is profound personal change.

We know that the brain is never in a static state; it is either growing or atrophying and testing our limits provokes healthy brain growth. You determine the test- form a book club and read that book you’ve been putting off; commit to your first 5k, marathon or dance class; face a fear public speaking or heights; join an Avielle Foundation Ragnar or Tough Mudder team or create your own tribe of TAFlete’s and take on a challenge together.

Being a TAFlete is about a personal commitment to the growth of our brain, body, and most times both. It’s acknowledging our vulnerabilities and embracing the protective factors to confront them. It is a personal commitment to the core principles of our mission.

As an extra motivation, many of our TAFletes make their crucible a fundraiser through creating an event on our Crowdrise page.
