The Okanagan-based BrainTrust Canada is the charity of choice for the Rotary Ride 2019. BrainTrust provides support to those affected by brain injury to maximize their potential and independence and also works to reduce preventable brain injuries for youth, who are at the greatest risk for injury.

The proceeds from Rotary Ride 2019 will support BrainTrust Canada including their Helmet Safety Program providing bike helmets for children and youth in the Vernon area who cannot afford them.
