One scholarship will be awarded annually to an applicant with an obstetrical “birth-related” brachial plexus injury (OBPI) and one scholarship will be awarded annually to an applicant with a traumatic brachial plexus injury (TBPI)  provided there are applicants in both groups.

Scholarship opening and closing dates will be posted each year with the application. Be on the lookout for the new dates for application!to submit your application:

Welcome to everyone.

United Brachial Plexus Network's first annual BPI Tears Up Nerves Virtual 5k Run/Walk was a rounding success with 62 runners and others donating to the cause.  The goal of this Run/Walk was to bring awareness to the public about life-altering brachial plexus injuries while raising funds to support UBPN Camp 2021.  UBPN Camp 2021 is a 4 day, 3-night informational gathering for people affected by brachial plexus injuries and their families.  Through fundraisers like this, UBPN is able to have all people with a brachial plexus injury attend camp without paying for room and board.

The weather was very cooperative and the site was fantastic!  We had wonderful speakers, anti-bullying workshops, mothers and fathers roundtables, and a myriad of other speakers and activities enjoyed by those in attendance.  We are currently looking at new camp-sites and are narrowing it down to somewhere in the midwest!
