The Minnesota Stroke Association is a proud member of Community Health Charities Minnesota. Community Health Charities Minnesota is an alliance of leading nonprofit health research and service organizations whose mission is to improve lives affected by chronic illness by investing in health research, services and education.
The stroke community is made up of families, friends, co-workers, educators, professionals, celebrities and passionate advocates who work to build a world where every stroke is treated in a timely manner and where stroke rates drop, year after year. If you want to see Minnesota’s stroke community in action, look no further than the Minnesota Stroke Association annual Strides for Stroke event. Here, the stroke community honors stroke survivors; walks in solidarity with one another; raises stroke awareness; and helps fund programs that benefit Minnesotans who live with the effects of stroke.

On-site registration begins at 9 a.m. and the walk begins at 10 a.m. Help us make this year's Walk even bigger by signing up today.
