Hoping to bring injuries to the surface, Four Rivers Co-op presented the Northern Brain Injury Association with a cheque for $1,733.
“Fuel Good Day is a fairly new event. We’ve been doing it for the last three years. We started it in Prince George last year when our Gas Bar opened. This year, we decided to partner with the Northern brain Injury Association. What we do is on this one day (in September) is we donated 10 cents from every litre of fuel sold to this group. We incorporated a dollar from every coffee and Big Cool.” Challen believes the Fuel Good Day allowed the association to get out there and raise awareness when it comes to the stigma associated with brain injuries. “I think people are understanding that my concussion is a brain injury, my stroke is a brain injury. They come to us looking for guidance and ways to better manage their brain injury, so I think that’s why we’re getting more clients.”
