Rowan's Law
Submitted By Andrew Pesheau on Tuesday, October 1, 2019
Rowan Stringer was a 17-year old Ottawa varsity rugby player who died from sustaining multiple concussions resulting in a catastrophic swelling of the brain – second impact syndrome.

In the week prior to her final game, Rowan had been hit twice, and likely sustained a concussion each time. These concussions were not recognized, and she continued to play. Rowan collapsed on the field and died four days later in hospital. No one knew, including Rowan that her brain needed time to heal.

Rowan’s Law and Rowan’s Law Day were established to honour her memory and bring awareness to concussions and concussion safety
