Tanya’s Ride for Brain Injury. Save the Date: Saturday, September 8th.

Velocity will be hosting a fundraising ride to support the Brain Injury Society of Toronto (BIST) and to honour and support Tanya.

For those of you that don’t know Tanya she was an avid cyclist and an enthusiastic member of the Velocity Tour For Kids Team. She loved participating in this event and did it four times from 2010 to 2013 fund raising significant dollars and organizing a very successful silent auction for the cause.  Sadly, she hasn’t had the chance to do it again after a cycling accident at Red Rock Canyon near Las Vegas in January 2014. Since the accident, Tanya has been courageously battling back from her traumatic brain injury ticking many boxes that her doctors said she would never be able to. The support of organizations like the Brain Injury Society of Toronto have given Tanya and the many others like her wonderful programmes and events to boost their spirits and put some fun back into their lives. For this reason, I hope you can all come out for a great ride and can give generously to the Brain Injury Society of Toronto to help them continue to provide their wonderful services.

More information details about the ride is to come. There will also be volunteer opportunities, so keep an eye on future emails for details.

  • Social Media Campaigns

  • Feed Stops

So save the date and watch for more information to follow.
