2018 Brain Boogie

posted by SK Brain Injury    |   July 31, 2018 17:15

 




For Immediate Release

 

A Walk in the Park to support the Long Journey After Brain Injury 

 

What began as a normal work day for Bob Spuzak, became life altering for him and his family when his vehicle collided with another at a dangerous intersection on the Trans Canada Highway. With “Prayers for Bob”, his family rallied friends, church, co-workers and extended family to support his long journey through recovery.   

 

Every August, they gather in Moose Jaw’s Crescent Park, armed with pledges and team spirit to celebrate Bob’s progress and to raise funds at the Brain Boogie.  The Brain Boogie supports the programs that mean so much to Bob, his family and other survivors throughout the province who find support and community where Saskatchewan Brain Injury Association (SBIA) groups meet. 

 

“Immediately after the accident, everyone was there for us but once they heard, ‘He’s going to make it!’ people’s attention returned to their own lives, unaware of the very long, hard journey ahead,” says his mother, Andy Dellabough.  Because of the support of his family and church, Bob’s story is different from that of others whose brain injury isolates them, but SBIA programs are still important for peer support and learning. 

 

The Brain Boogie is a fun walk held in five cities around the province. It is held on August 25th, 2018 in Regina & Yorkton, August 26, 2018 in Moose Jaw, September 8, 2018 in Prince Albert, and September 9, 2018 in Saskatoon. This event is anticipated all year by SBIA’s enthusiastic members. In each location, it begins with registration at 10 am, and is followed by a BBQ and a family fun Boogie celebration. Each city adds a different spin to the event. In Regina, the Saskatchewan Roughrider cheerleaders lead a warm up; in Moose Jaw, a local yoga studio leads it; in Yorkton, the event is held as a golf tournament and steak night. In Saskatoon, the Coors Light CRUSH Dancers lead a warm up & cheer on participants. 

 

The Saskatchewan Brain Injury Association strives to prevent brain injuries and to improve the lives of survivors and their families. Brain injury is the number one killer and disabler of children and those under the age of 44. SBIA aims to change these statistics with awareness through events like the Brain Boogie.

June is Brain Injury Awareness Month

posted by SK Brain Injury    |   June 4, 2018 10:29

For Release June 1, 2018


More than one million people in Canada are living with a brain injury, and that number increases daily. 
During Brain Injury Awareness Month this June, brain injury associations across the country are putting a face to this epidemic through posters, events, and social media using the hashtags, #BIAM18 and #BIAM2018.
Brain Injury can happen to anyone, anywhere, anytime.  The focus in 2018 is on WHERE brain injuries can happen.

 

•    Lisa was a Grade 1 teacher attending a conference when she developed a severe headache.  Fortunately for her, a friend took her seriously, and helped her to get to a nearby hospital where an aneurism was discovered.
•    Nikki was walking home from a neighbour’s house when a drunk driver’s truck hit her.
•    Bruce was at work on a roof when he fell, landing on the pavement below.
•    Rachel was celebrating Thanksgiving with her family at their farm on a beautiful day when the ATV she was riding hit a bump, threw her into the air and landed on top of her.
•    Damien was driving a car in the Yukon that left the highway and rolled over.

 

Videos of these people telling their stories will be posted in June at www.sbia.ca
Brain injury is the NUMBER ONE cause of death and disability WORLDWIDE among children, youth and those under age 44. 
The Saskatchewan Brain Injury Association is a charitable organization that strives to prevent brain injuries and to improve the lives of survivors and their families.  Working with local lodges of the Canadian Royal Purple Society in Saskatchewan and across Canada, we are spreading the message that Prevention is the ONLY Cure for Brain Injury. Visit www.sbia.ca for more information.

Interviews can be arranged with each of the people featured in the videos.
