A Brain is a Beautiful Thing.

Did you know our brains are more complex than the most sophisticated computers?  They control everything - walking, talking, breathing, our personalities, and all decision-making.  In other words, your brain is kind of a big deal.

Everything Can Change in an Instant.

A serious brain injury can prevent youth from doing the things they love, like playing sports or hanging out with friends.  It can change their personality, cause memory loss, create sensitivity to light, and much more.

Know the Facts.

A brain injury happens every 3 minutes in Canada.

Youth in their mid to late teens are at the highest risk for brain injury.

Concussion is the most common form of brain injury.

Helmets can prevent up to 85% of brain injuries.

Choose Brilliantly.

The good news is, there are lots of ways to lower the risk of a brain injury. It starts by making bright choices like wearing a helmet for sports that involve speed or hard surfaces, and not letting pressure from others influence decisions.

Keep Your Brain Covered.

Put on a helmet for these speedy sports:

  • Biking
  • Snowboarding and skiing
  • Skateboarding, rollerblading, & scootering

Spread the word!

Together, we can all be brighter.
