Brent knows concussions and the lasting effect they can have on someone far too well.

While playing in the OHL for the Sarnia Sting, he suffered multiple concussions in every season, never finishing a season healthy. Retiring at 22 due to concussion issues and post concussion syndrome, he went on to suffer one more concussion in a car accident in 2015 that put him in a downward spiral.

After dealing with mental health issues, personality changes, and massive weight gain, Brent has decided to fight back. He has committed to run the 2018 Tamarack Ottawa Race weekend Half Marathon, and hopes to raise money for the Concussion Legacy Foundation as he battles back from post concussion syndrome.

Having started on June 1, Brent will be documenting his journey while training for the half marathon along side his two furry friends, 6 year old border collie Ella and 3 year old Golden Retriever Harvey.

Here he will post updates often on how the training is going, as well as how you can donate or support his cause.
