Description

Kevin Pearce went from being an Olympic Gold medal hopeful to suffering a severe traumatic brain injury (TBI) that nearly took his life. As a champion snowboarder once considered the key rival to Shaun White, Kevin earned back-to-back victories at The Oakley Arctic Challenge and became a silver medalist at the 2009 Winter X Games. Then, tragedy struck. In a devastating training accident, Kevin suffered the traumatic brain injury. Now as the co-founder of the Love Your Brain Foundation, Kevin has found a passionate sense of purpose advocating for the prevention of braininjury and assisting those affected by it.
