Organize a fundraiser
Plan an event and raise funds for brain research
It is estimated that one in three Canadians will face a mental illness, a neurological disorder or a brain injury at some point in their lives. Collectively, the diseases of the brain are the major health challenge of the 21st century and impose a $60-billion burden on the Canadian economy every year – an impact greater than cancer and cardiovascular disease combined.
New ideas, tested through research, and leading to innovation and discovery, hold the promise of reducing the burden on Canada’s health care system, improving productivity, and enhancing the health of individuals and our communities. Over the past 20 years, Brain Canada has provided $250 million in grants to support 300 excellent and innovative projects involving more than 1,000 researchers at 115 institutions across the country.
Help support innovative brain research by organizing a fundraiser for Brain Canada. From golf tournaments to bike rides to extreme mountain climbing challenges, funds raised through your event will go to Canada’s best brain scientists conducting research to unravel the mysteries of the brain.
