about

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).

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

Special thank you to our BB&B Sponsor, Miska Trailer Factory and everyone that is participating in our first FUNdraiser this fall. All the money raised from our Fall Recreational Volleyball League will benefit our Bikes, Blades & Boards program.
