BECOME A TAF’lete

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, that test our fortitude, and provoke suffering. Authentic change is a product of suffering, 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, 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 with the support of friends. 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 growth of our brain, body and most times both. It’s acknowledging our vulnerabilities and embracing the protective factors to confront them. It’s 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. https://www.crowdrise.com/theaviellefoundation
