ACT FAST Running Team
The Minnesota Stroke Association is starting a running team and YOU can join! The ACT FAST RUNNING TEAM will participate in races around the Twin Cities throughout 2013 and raise money for important Association programs.
As a runner, you will receive a logo t-shirt from the Minnesota Stroke Association for participating and potentially receive gear or benefits from participating local sponsors.
You will run either individually or as part of a team. Your participation will benefit not only the Minnesota Stroke Association, but also the stroke community as a whole by raising awareness of the effects of stroke as well as advocating for Minnesotans living with the long-term effects of stroke.
We see this as a fantastic and fun opportunity to raise funds for the Association and raise awareness of our services and stroke prevention efforts.
