LOCAL NEWS - JULY 20, 2021: BLANC-SABLON – Julie Aubin is cycling across Canada for awareness and hope to those who have suffered a brain injury
CFBS was speaking with Julie Aubin, a cyclist and adventurer, who is currently cycling across Canada. Julie is spreading awareness about brain injuries, and raising money for Répit Jeunesse, a community organization that helps a diverse clientele with social, mental health, addiction, homelessness, school dropouts, and other problems.
Julie's story is quite amazing. After being struck by a motorist while cycling, she had sustained mild head trauma, concussion, and post-concussion syndrome. Julie rehabilitated herself to about 80%, with some after-effects of her injury that are still present. But still she pushes through, and is committed to her journey of awareness. One she says is necessary towards returning to her health, towards personal resilience, towards people and their own hopes.
