The Hamilton Brain Injury Association, The Hamilton Health Sciences Acquired Brain Injury Program, and Brain Injury Services partnered with community agencies to develop the Bikes, Blades & Boards (BB&B) injury prevention program in 2000.
To fulfill our educational pillar, the Hamilton Brain Injury Association operates BB&B which is 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).
Special thank you to our Community Partners: ABI Community Services, Brain Injury Services, Paradigm Rehabilitation Services and to our BB&B Sponsors: Miska Trailer Factory, The Morris Law Group, Mackesy Smye Lawyers (Maxine Birdsell) & Paradigm Rehabilitation
