10th Annual Heads Up Walk-a-thon for Brain Injury Awareness

2018 HEADS-Up Walkathon

2018 is the 10th Annual HEADS-Up Walkathon, and this will be the first year this event is a “virtual” event.

A virtual event is one that takes place via social media (online) and

allows supporters to interact online from their own environment.


What does this look like?

  • During the entire month of June, DBIS will be posting information, photos, videos, and other content on our social media platforms (Facebook & Twitter).
  • DBIS will be asking for our supporters to get involved online with us! Like, share, comment and participate in the online activity to be involved. Share your steps, post pictures of you walking and challenge others to participate and get active!
  • Pledge sheets are available on our website. Please download and print one off to collect pledges. Submit your completed form and the funds raised to support our Walkathon Fund and win prizes!
  • We will be tracking and updating an online count of the fundraising total throughout the month to show our supporters how the campaign is doing.


How can you get involved?

  • Go online and like the DBIS Facebook page at www.facebook.com/DaleBrainInjuryServices/ and follow us on twitter @DaleServices – This will ensure you are able to follow all of our online activity and participate too!
  • Download the pledge form at www.daleservices.on.ca and ask for friends and family to support your participation in the walkathon. Fill out the information requested and once pledges have been collected, submit the completed sheet with funds to DBIS.
  • Canada helps will still accept and process online credit card donations.

**NEW THIS YEAR – Canada Helps will now facilitate team fundraising. To create your team, please visit https://www.canadahelps.org/en/charities/dale-brain-injury-services-inc/p2p/Headsupwalkathon/


How to use the new pledge form:

  • The new pledge form is much like the previous form – with only a couple of changes.
  • There are prizes for those that raise over $50 in pledges – see the prizes listed on the back of the pledge sheet.
  • Please identify the category which represents you on the pledge sheet – Family/Client, Staff, or Community Partner. This will enter your pledge form into the Grand Prize for your supporter category.
