September 27 is #RowansLawDay, named after the young athlete behind Ontario’s concussion safety law.
Rowan Stringer was a high school rugby player from Ottawa who passed away in the spring of 2013 from a condition called second impact syndrome. It is believed she experienced three concussions over six days while playing rugby,
As a result of Rowan's death, Rowan's Law and Rowan's Law Day were established to honour her memory and bring awareness to concussions and concussion safety.
Help create a safer playing field for all athletes by spreading awareness about concussion safety using #RowansLawDay and sharing resources from Ontario Soccer's concussion awareness resources.
