Carilion Trauma Team joins survivors in ‘Race to Rebuild’

Roanoke Valley News

ROANOKE, Va. (WFXR) – Carilion Trauma Services is teaming up with former trauma patients as part of the national Trauma Survivors Network (TSN) – a community of patients and survivors looking to connect with one another to help rebuild their lives after a serious injury.

TSN’s goal is to ensure the survivors of trauma have a stable recovery and can connect with others who share similar experiences.

To commemorate the network, more than 72 staff and trauma survivors at Carilion are participating in TSN’s Race to Rebuild – a virtual 5K/10K/one-mile run/walk/cycle/roll event that anyone can join during the month of May, which is Trauma Survivors Month.

As the region’s only Level 1 trauma center, Carilion Roanoke Memorial Hospital provides the highest level of specialized trauma and critical care services to western Virginia.

Carilion’s team is planning an in-person meeting on the Roanoke River Greenway on Saturday, May 15 at 1 p.m. to run/walk/cycle/roll together.
