By BBN Staff: After several delays due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the Belize Brain Awareness Society (BBAS) is finally hosting its second annual Brain Bikers Rally to raise awareness about brain injury.
The event, which serves as a fundraiser so the organization can continue to offer life-saving support to its members, takes place on Sunday, November 1, and starts at 9:00 a.m. Participants will assemble at the Belmopan entrance roundabout and make the journey to Belize City, ending at the BTL Park on Princess Margaret Drive.
Kaylia Nunez, the founder of the BBAS, explained that due to the current safety measures in place, there will not be any closing ceremony for this year’s event and participants will receive their badges on while still on their bikes as they pass, to avoid a gathering of more than 10 people.
Nunez noted that the event is inspired by a motorist, now deceased, who died following a motorcycle accident in which he sustained a brain injury. She also noted that the event is much-needed as the pandemic has severely limited the organization’s ability to help those in need.
“All our events are geared towards a specific purpose,” Nunez said. “This event is to raise awareness on brain injury but also help a six-year-old girl who desperately needs an MRI. She’s now suffering from 10 seizures a day.”
Those not participating in the rally but still wanting to support the organization can make a donation to Belize Brain Awareness Society’s Bank: Belize Bank account #: 1 8 2 4 3 1 0 1 0 1 2 0 0 0 0.
