2017 CAMPAIGN | Our Partners
It takes a huge number of people and organizations to make a campaign like this a success. The BC Falls and Injury Prevention Coalition would like to thank all of our campaign partners who helped turn this idea into a reality including: our funders, all the people who gave their time and energy on feedback along the way, and our models and locations who generously helped us to take the photos needed for the campaign.
