Rowan's Law Day
The last Wednesday of each September has been designated as Rowan’s Law Day to help raise awareness about concussion safety. Rowans Law is the first of its kind in Canada and around the world. 

Please join us in remembering Rowan Stringer by promoting concussion safety through a tweet, Facebook or Instagram post. Show your support for #RowansLawDay by sharing your stories and learning the signs and symptoms of a concussion.

Rowan Stringer’s story

Rowan’s Law was named for Rowan Stringer, a high school rugby player from Ottawa, who died in the spring of 2013 from a condition known as second impact syndrome (swelling of the brain caused by a subsequent injury that occurred before a previous injury healed). Rowan is believed to have experienced three concussions over six days while playing rugby. She had a concussion but didn’t know her brain needed time to heal. Neither did her parents, teachers or coaches. Rowan’s Law and Rowan’s Law Day were established to honour her memory and bring awareness to concussions and concussion safety.
