A Recap of the 2018 Train the Brain Campaign

Palm Healthcare Foundation’s newest “better health” campaign, Train the Brain, was a huge success! Thank you to all who participated by taking the brain fitness pledge and coming to the free events offered throughout the community. The Palm Healthcare Foundation team had such a great time meeting and practicing brain health with you.
 

Here are some successes from the campaign:

  • Over 1,000 Palm Beach County residents took the pledge to commit to be brain fit
  • 350 guests attended the inaugural Train the Brain kickoff luncheon held at the Kravis Center Cohen Pavilion on January 19thCLICK HERE to view photos of the luncheon; Jupiter Medical Center's Calcagnini Center for Mindfulness was the Mind, Body, Spirit Luncheon Sponsor
  • 26 FREE Train the Brain events took place throughout the county
  • Almost 400 residents now own a Train the Brain t-shirt, hopefully promoting conversation when they wear them
     

The goals of Train the Brain were to help Palm Beach County residents reduce stress through brain fitness, achieve balance in their lives and show compassion to individuals with acute and persistent mental health challenges.
 

The community came together to meet these goals throughout the campaign. Train the Brain opened up a safe space for dialogue around mental health, which is equally as important as physical health. Palm Healthcare Foundation is grateful to Train the Brain’s lead sponsor, The Merrell Family Foundation, for leading the charge in reducing mental health stigma during this campaign by bravely telling their family’s story.
 

The campaign has ended, but Palm Healthcare Foundation's work around brain health has not! The Train the Brain website will be open year-round, readily available with brain health resources. Palm Healthcare Foundation has also launched a million dollar Better Brain Health campaign, to raise funds around programming and resources that will continue the impact for better brain health in our community.
