5K By The Bay 2018

On June 16th, 2018, The Hamilton Brain Injury Association will be hosting our 13th Annual 5K By The Bay at Pier 4 next to William's Cafe at The Hamilton Harbour.  We hope that you will consider supporting our event by providing sponsorship, pledge a runner, donate a prize or by registering to participate. 


The HBIA is a non-profit charitable organization that provides support and education to those that have survived a brain injury and their families.  In addition to the support groups, the HBIA offers various programs such as arts and crafts club, glee club, breakfast club, just to name a few.  With the funds raised we have been able to open a clubhouse at 822 Main Street East and we now have a full-time facilitator.  In order to continue to operate and hopefully expand the services and programs offered, we need your help.


This event is always extremely well attended with about 300-400 individuals, survivors, family, friends, community leaders in ABI, healthcare, the legal and insurance industry.  It is a great afternoon and we hope you can attend.


The HBIA clubhouse, the support groups and the programs we offer mean so much to not only those who have survived a brain injury but their families and caregivers.  Please consider supporting the HBIA 5K By The Bay and help us to achieve our goals.



HBIA Walk/Run Committee

Incredible prizes will be available for top runners based on age/gender/kids grade level categories for the 1K Kids run and the 5K run. Our event is also catered so our runners will have lots of food to replenish their energy after running. Race bags and jerseys are provided to registrants on a first come first serve basis as supplies last.
