A healthy brain is progressive, organic, imaginative and flexible. Branch Out Neurological Foundation strives to be the same. We support alternative therapies in the treatment of nervous system disorders and we’d like you to join us.
Together we can unravel the mysteries of the brain and cure the diseases that afflict 1 in 6 Canadians.
Branch Out Foundation held its first major event in June of 2011, The First Annual Branch Out Bike Tour, and raised over $50,000 in donations to be directed towards neurological research! In 2012 the Foundation hosted the Second Annual event, attracting nearly 300 participants and raising over $85,000 in donations! This year we expect the Bike Tour to draw over 300 participants and volunteers and raise over $100,000 for neurological disorders.
In 2012 Branch Out initiated our first ever grant program, awarding grants to six undergraduate students from the University of Calgary, Mount Royal University, and the University of Alberta. These students were given the opportunity to present their work at the 2012 Bike Tour and made a final presentation to the Board of Directors and Scientific Review Panel in October of 2012. Several Branch Out Sponsors and Donors were also in attendance to view the impact of their contributions first hand.
