BIST 10th Annual Virtual Heroes Run, Walk or Roll

As a member firm of PIA Law, we are proud to be a Platinum sponsor of the Brain Injury Society of Toronto.

It’s been a tough year, and BIST needs your support more than ever. Throughout the pandemic, BIST has continued to serve people with brain injuries, by moving their programs online, offering telephone support, and continuing their case management supports.

Their goal this year is to raise $50,000 so they can continue to do this important work & more.

We are calling all Heroes of Brain Injury to break out your capes and step up to the virtual start line. Assemble in your own group and Run, Walk or Roll on your own route in support of BIST.

Because whether you are a Survivor / Thriver, Caregiver, Family Member, Friend or Professional with the ABI Field – you are a HERO of Brain Injury!

A Weekend of Giving Back

McLeish Orlando Supports BIST 5k Run, Walk and Roll and SCIO Wheelchair Relay Challenge

This past weekend, McLeish Orlando staff, family and friends came out to support two very important causes in our community. In spite of the rain on Saturday, there were close to 300 participants who finished the race for the 3rd Annual BIST 5K Run.

McLeish Orlando participated as part of The Personal Injury Alliance with a team of close to a hundred staff and supporters.

Through sponsorship, fundraising and registration, BIST generated over $50,000 that will go a long way in supporting programs, services and efforts to raise brain injury awareness.

The Brain Injury Society of Toronto supports brain injury survivors and family members. BIST aims to enhance the quality of life for people in the City of Toronto, living with the effects of brain injury through education, awareness, support and advocacy.
