Rowan’s Law Day (Sept. 25)

Sep 25, 2019 | Uncategorized

 

Rowans Law Day was recognized on September 25, 2019 — a day dedicated annually to the memory of Rowan Stringer. 

The day represents an opportunity to engage students, staff, coaches and parents/guardians in activities that increase awareness about concussions and to share Rowan Stringer’s story.

Thanks to Rowan’s Law, all sports organizations and schools in Ontario will now have new rules in place involving concussions. Our partners in sport, OPHEA, have done significant work with committees for Rowan’s Law Day.

OPHEA’s Rowan’s Law Day Toolkit for Schools encourages students to speak up about concussions.
