Snowboarder Kevin Pearce was released from the inpatient Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI) Program at Craig Hospital on April 14, 2010.

Kevin will continue daily outpatient therapy with Craig Hospital while residing in the Denver-area home that has been generously loaned to the Pearce family for the last several months. Kevin’s outpatient treatment is expected to be the final step in Colorado before returning to his Norwich, VT home in the upcoming weeks, where he will continue to make strides toward a full recovery.  Kevin Pearce was injured Dec. 31, 2009 while training in the halfpipe at Park City Mountain Resort.

In addition, the family credits the continued outpouring of support and well-wishes from family, friends and fans, as well as messages sent to Kevin throughout his recovery, as lifting Kevin¹s spirits and helping speed up his progress.
