TULSA, Okla. — Organizers came together Wednesday to announce the creation of the Brain Injury Recovery Foundation and an accompanying fundraiser.
Chris Lieberman -- founder of the Williams Route 66 Marathon and Center of the Universe Festival -- announced the foundation with its co-founder Kim Hann in downtown Tulsa Wednesday morning.
Lieberman suffered a severe traumatic brain injury after a fall at the Route 66 Marathon warehouse on March 8, 2016.
Hann took Lieberman around the county for several surgeries and treatments that were not available to him in Oklahoma.
Lieberman spent the last three years recovering from his injury with out-of-state treatments and has traveled to a Dallas recovery center every week since September 2018.
He can now walk without the assistance of a cane or wheelchair.
The Brain Injury Recovery Foundation plans to build an activity-based walking clinic in Tulsa which would be the first of its kind in Oklahoma.
