COVID-19 UPDATE: Turning Lemons into Lemonade
The Saskatchewan Brain Injury Association (SBIA) is grateful for your participation, sponsorship and continued support for our annual Brain Boogie Walk & Run over the years. Our community is courageous and resilient – and together we are making a difference!
We are following the latest news and government advice regarding COVID-19. In light of the current public health recommendation to limit large group gatherings, we have made the decision to take the 2020 Brain Boogie fundraiser online and run the event virtually for the entire month of August. Although we can’t be together in person, we can still participate and fundraise for a great cause!
VIRTUAL Brain Boogie Details
We are also excited to announce our partnership with Saskatchewan recording artist, Kyla Grace. Brain Boogie participants who want to dance as part of their fundraising efforts can learn a routine to her single “Young & Free”, which you can listen to by clicking KYLA GRACE. If you’re ready to get your Boogie on, you can click HERE to learn the choreography.

What is a Virtual Brain Boogie?
The SBIA Brain Boogie is a province-wide event that encourages community, movement and raising funds for a great cause. Support your community by donating and/or participating in your local Brain Boogie! All funds stay in your community to support local programs for brain injury survivors and their families as well as awareness and prevention programs.
The aim of this year’s Brain Boogie is the same as it is every year: getting together as a community to raise money for those affected by brain injury and fund brain injury awareness and prevention initiatives. The main difference is that, this year, it will all be happening online. Instead of all the participants meeting in their respective cities on specific dates, everyone will be participating throughout the entire month of August.
How will the Virtual Brain Boogie work?
As a participant, you will register online then either pay your fee or fundraise. You get to decide how you would like to ‘Boogie’ – whether it be a walk, run, wheel, golf or dance – and you choose the day, time and location to take part. When you’re ready to ‘get your Boogie on’, don’t forget to take a photo or video of yourself in action using a smartphone. Then, please share it with us, post it on social media, and encourage your friends and family to get involved!
