Shannon skating with the Kelowna Rockets to help raise awareness of Braintrust Canada
It’s that time of year again! OKTOBERFEST! We are proud to be supporters of BrainTrust Canada again this year by sponsoring this great Oktoberfest event here in Kelowna! Get on your best German outfit and come join us at the Laurel Packing House on Friday, October 26th! It’s all for the wonderful cause – Braintrust! We are honoured to be able to assist in raising funds for Braintrust Canada to help educate the community about concussion/brain injury and how to prevent, recognize, and respond to it.
Shannon says, “As a hockey mom, I admit that prior to my sons’ involvement in the sport, I didn’t realize that concussions happen at such a young age and how often they occur. Tamara and I are concerned that many people don’t know the signs of concussion to watch for, but we both can take some comfort in being aware of the steps to take, if and when concussions do occur.”
“We believe in giving back…and helping get that awareness out there,” says Tamara. “Yes, I think that’s the key thing,” says Shannon.“We really would like to create more awareness of concussions along with BrainTrust.”
We hope to see you all there!
