ABOUT THE PROGRAM:

The Hamilton Brain Injury Association, Hamilton Health Sciences Acquired Brain Injury Program, and Head Injury Rehabilitation Ontario (formerly Brain Injury Services) partnered together with community agencies to redevelop the Bikes, Blades & Boards (BB&B) in 2000.

Today, HBIA operates BB&B; a volunteer-based educational program led by dedicated committee members and volunteers. This program is available at no cost to Hamilton, Niagara and Haldimand-Norfolk School Boards. To better serve you, our BB&B committee members and volunteers conduct presentations throughout the entire academic year (excluding December) as of 2019.

Thank you to our Community Partners: HHS ABI Program, Head Injury Rehabilitation Ontario, Paradigm Rehabilitation and Nursing Services and Mohawk College.
