Chris Lieberman, born and raised in Tulsa, Oklahoma is one of Tulsa's greatest assets and put his "Lieberfun" touch, through his company Amazing Events, LLC, on many of Tulsa's award-winning events. Before Chris' accident, he was the Creator, Founder and Executive Director of the Williams Route 66 Marathon; the Center of the Universe Festival; and was Entertainment Director for Tulsa Oktoberfest - creator the infamous Euro Disco.
On March 8, 2016, Chris was working at the event warehouse when he fell from a ladder, approximately 6-10 feet high. He fell onto the concrete floor and suffered a Traumatic Brain Injury. That’s where our journey began.
Chris started out in a coma and began the journey of healing from his Traumatic Brain Injury. Chris had an incredible team of doctors, medical staff, friends, family, colleagues and a community who loved him and helped him with the recovery process by providing assistance both financially and emotionally; as well as a girlfriend, Kim Hann, and loving daughters, Ashton Portokalis and Aldyn Anderson who stayed by his side and advocated for him
With a lack of neurological hospitals and treatment centers in Oklahoma, Chris' family was forced to raise funds to seek medical care out of state. That is what prompted the creation of the Brain Injury Recovery Foundation.
