Over 210,000 Floridians suffer from a traumatic brain injury (TBI) each year, and Tony Meduri is one of them. Tony was a retired police officer of 32 years when he was hit by a drunk driver and suffered a TBI. No longer able to live a normal life or return home, his traumatic and anoxic brain injury left him in need of 24/7 care.  Tony’s Run Turkey Trot aims to raise awareness for both Tony Meduri and the thousands of others suffering from TBI.
