Brian Challenge 2014 logo: an image of Mont Blanc on a shield. At the bottom, the caption Making the disability visible over two crossed ice picks.

Brain Injury Association of NSW is planning an expedition to climb Mont Blanc. A team of four has been in training since January for a September 2014 climb of one of Europe’s most visible mountains and most challenging climbs. 

Their purpose is twofold, firstly to raise the profile and awareness of brain injury across Australia and to raise funds for increased services that the organisation can provide.
