This year marks the 2nd annual Women’s Brain Health Day.
And YOU have the chance to play an exciting role.
In 2019, Women’s Brain Health Initiative challenged you to do a headstand to stand up against research bias and stand ahead for women’s brain health.
For this year’s Stand Ahead™ Challenge the cause is the same but we are having a contest!
We need you to put on your thinking cap and come up with your own idea about what the 2020 Challenge should be!
Here’s what you do.
Create a fun, social challenge and submit your idea on our website.
You will have the chance to win a Stand Ahead™ Gift Basket, a $1,000 r Amazon E-Card courtesy of the Citrine Foundation of Canada, and you could be featured in our fall Mind Over Matter® Magazine.
The contest starts August 1 and closes August 30.
Then we will have a live online vote to see which challenge should win!
The winner will be announced September16.
For the rules and full details on how to enter, visit the Stand Ahead™ website.
The winning idea will be the official 2020 Stand Ahead Challenge that takes place on Women’s Brain Health Day on December 2.
Money raised will be matched by Brain Canada up to $250,000.
Good luck! Take a stand. We can’t wait to see your ideas!
