Valley First for BrainTrust

Valley First, a division of First West Credit Union, is providing continued funding to BrainTrust Canada’s “E-BrainTrust” program to support innovative education and prevention initiatives for concussion and brain injury throughout the Okanagan. This investment in education allows BrainTrust to increase its community presence, strengthen its tools, and increase the quality of its programs.
 
“We are pleased to continue this partnership with BrainTrust Canada that allows them to continue to focus on education for diverse audiences, both in the area of supporting those with brain injury and concussion, as well as prevention” says President Paulo Araujo.  “It’s programs like this that really help our members and communities thrive.”
 
“Investing in education is so important to bring awareness to the community about concussion and brain injury,” says Mona Hennenfent, CEO of BrainTrust Canada. “We are the only organization that supports those with brain injury in the Okanagan, and this funding allows us to do some more to improve the lives of those with concussion or brain injury, as well as prevention for youth who are at the greatest risk for injury.”
