Home / News / The Link Foundation’s Stay Strong Link Hits 1000 Connections!


SSBigCheckPhotoWe have been working towards this and now it has finally happened. The Link Foundation has a growing history of creating beneficial collaborations and allocating fundraising materials and dollars to worthy nonprofits and community and personal causes. The Foundation would like to announce the outstanding milestone of connecting 1000 people through its Stay Strong link! The Stay Strong link was created to benefit U.S. Gold Medalist Stephen Murray, who was severely injured during a Professional BMX Dirt Finals competition in 2007. The work of the Stay Strong link has made these 1000 connections possible. The connections convert to an extraordinary $5000 the Link Foundation has helped produce through donated links and monetary donations to directly benefit Stephen Murray. The Link Foundation pledges to continue to generate support for Stephen Murray by promoting awareness and connection through the Stay Strong link to aid in his recovery.

Above and beyond these efforts we have made in 100% donation to Stephen and Stay Strong, we are also donating $500.00!!!

A huge thank you goes out to everyone who has made the 1000 Stay Strong connections possible! Stay Strong and Link on and keep the chain of connection and support going!

    • ….sometimes you just need a little help from your friends, and other times you make new friends during a very difficult time.  This is what happened to our family when our son, Brett Banasiewicz, suffered a traumatic brain injury on his BMX bike on August 23, 2011.  Dustin Grice is one of Brett’s BMX buddies that reached out to us about the Link Foundation.  Jeff Troldahl, founder of the Link Foundation, and Dustin Grice designed a “Maddog” bracelet with Brett’s signature colors pink and green.  The Link Foundation sold many bracelets via the internet and also allowed us to sell the bracelets at Brett’s BMX Skate Park.  The proceeds went to Brett’s mounting medical bills.  Brett was able to obtain the best care in the United States that also included hyperbarics.  Brett had to relocate to Texas because the state of Indiana is not licensed to administer hyperbarics  for TBI’s..
