Minnesota Stroke Association


The Minnesota Stroke Association's annual events help raise community awareness of stroke while honoring stroke survivors and paying tribute to those who have supported our organization throughout the years.

Strides for Stroke

Strides for Stroke is still happening on May 16, but since we're not going to all be able to get together in one location, we're changing the entire thing to a virtual Strides for Stroke. At 10 a.m. on May 16, we want you to take a walk in whatever way is most convenient and safe for you and your loved ones - so, take a walk around your house, around your neighborhood, your yard, or a park. And we want you to take pictures, shoot videos, and record your experience. We'll then ask everyone to send in their footage to a to-be-determined location.

Although most Minnesotans are having to stop what they're doing, we all know that stroke doesn't stop. And the Minnesota Stroke Association doesn't stop either. You're a part of our stroke community - our stroke family - and we care about you and want to remain here for you.

The 2020 Strides for Stroke will take place on Saturday, May 16 all around Minnesota. You can join us and donate online! Share with us on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram what you are doing to to get ready for Strides for Stroke by using the hashtag #S4S2020.

Strike Out Stroke

Strike Out Stroke is presented each May (National Stroke Month) in partnership with the Minnesota Twins baseball team. At its heart, the event honors stroke survivors from the previous year. The 2020 Strike Out Stroke day will take place on May 6.

Stroke Awareness Month

Each May, the Minnesota Stroke Association celebrates National Stroke Awareness Month. The month of May becomes a highlight for all who have been touched by stroke. Click here for more information.
