Bike for Brain Care 

A virtual bike-a-thon supporting Brain Care Centre's Concussion Program. 

Brain Care Centre is an Edmonton-based non-profit organization offering programs, services, and support to Albertans living with acquired brain injury. 

Currently, wait times for Brain Care Centre’s Concussion Program are nearly 9 months long, leaving many individuals without support.

Funds raised will help us reduce the wait time for our Concussion Program, so those in need can access the programs and services that help them thrive after brain injury! 

When: July 30–August 31, 2020

On July 30th, join us for a Facebook Live Kick-off event from 7-8pm MST on the Brain Care Centre Facebook page!

This Livestream will be hosted by Global Edmonton's, Su-Ling Goh, and will feature national team cyclists Alex Stieda and Stefan Ritter, followed by leading emergency medicine researcher Dr. Brian Rowe.

After our Facebook live kick-off event, our virtual bike-a-thon begins! You have the entire month of August to reach your cycling goal and fundraise for Brain Care Centre.

 

Step 1: Register 

Register here and set a target of kilometres as your personal cycling challenge! Your goal could be to ride 50 km, 100 km or 1,000 km — the main thing is to challenge yourself, and have some fun! 

There are two ways to register:

  • Individual: Register as an individual and set a personal kilometre goal. Share your goal and activity with your supporters and stay connected to other Bike for Brain Care riders on social media. 
  • Team: Team-up with your family, friends, or coworkers to fundraise toward a collective kilometre and fundraising goal.

Make sure to share your kilometre goal on your campaign page! 

Step 2: Fundraise

Every participant is committed to raising at least $100 for Brain Care Centre throughout the month of August! 

Get the word out to your friends and family and tell everyone about the Bike for Brain Care challenge. Ask them to support you by making a donation towards your cause ! It's as easy as asking 10 people for $10, 4 people for $25, or any combination you can think of!

Step 3: Get Biking 

Pedal your way through August to reach your personal kilometre goal! Get out there anytime and anywhere in August (while physical distancing, of course).  Need a tracker? Download the Strava app here.

 

If you are unable to bike, you can also walk, run, or roll to reach your kilometre goal! 

Post about your progress using the hashtag #BikeForBrainCare and tag your friends to join in! 

Step 4: Reap the Rewards 

Join us for a Facebook wrap-up event  on August 31st, featuring event highlights, prizes for the top riders, and so much more!

 

Register or donate today.  Let's show we are a community that cares about brain injury!

A big thanks to our corporate donors & sponsors. We couldn't do this without you!
