SIRC partnered with Bell Media to produce a comprehensive advertising campaign to reach Canadians from coast to coast to coast:
Concussion Awareness Week 2021
Concussion Awareness week is quickly approaching, September 26 to October 2, 2021, and we can all play a role in sharing key messages through recommended resources as well as awareness building activities. Check out the Concussion Awareness Week toolkit created by the Federal-Provincial/Territorial Working Group on Concussions in Sport for resources you can share with your colleagues leading up to and beyond Concussion Awareness Week as well as activity ideas and social media content your organization can use to promote awareness.
SIRC’s assortment of We Are Headstrong materials is designed to help sport organizations promote concussion awareness directly with their members. All assets have been already custom-sized, either for printing or sharing digitally:
- SIRC posters (8″x11″) – use these as signage in your facilities.
- SIRC Trifold Pamphlet Handout – deliver these directly to participants – athletes, coaches, parents.
- SIRC Reflector Tag Handout – deliver these directly to participants – athletes, coaches, parents.
Download the 4Rs banner and share with your organization’s partners and members.
