June has been officially named "Brain Injury Awareness" month in Ottawa. To raise awareness and funds, I am hosting the 6th Annual Brain Injury Awareness Walk on June 24, 2017 at Britannia Beach.
This will be more than just the walk, it will be a celebration of success. There will be people with different abilities. The walk will start at 10am, lunch will be at 12:00 and everybody will be empowered by their accomplishment.

Many who have suffered such a challenging set back have limited income, and cannot afford to participate in all community activities that can assist with their rehabilitation. The funds raised at the walk are for the Pathways Community Access Fund. The fund provides the “little bit extra” to those who would like to participate in community activities and events, but are unable to due to finances. The Pathways Community Access Fund is accessible to anyone with disabilities, and not required to be a Pathway’s supported client.
More information is on the Foundation website:
Acquired Brain Injury Facts:
Did you know that TBI (traumatic brain injury) is more common than breast cancer, spinal cord injury, HIV/AIDS, and multiple sclerosis, COMBINED? In the province of Ontario, where there are two million people diagnosed with a neurological condition; 500,000 people have an Acquired Brain Injury (ABI) as a result of Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI) and multiple Traumatic Brain Injuries (mTBI). In a company of 40 people that would be 10 people affected.
