Thank you for your continued support of Strides for Stroke and the Minnesota Stroke Association. We are grateful as an organization to have individuals like you to working to raise money and recruit walkers every year for Strides for Stroke.
Stroke is the leading cause of death and disability in the United States and is a leading cause of death in Minnesota, resulting in more than 12,000 hospitalizations in the state each year. Over 97,000 Minnesotans report having had a stroke in their lifetime.
Stroke is also a community made up of families, friends, co-workers, educators, professionals, celebrities and passionate advocates who work to build a world where every stroke us 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’s 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. Strides for Stroke demonstrates that stroke survivors are people with possibilities.
The Minnesota Stroke Association Strides for Stroke walk is returning in May to its in-person format! That means walking near other people. Outside. In public!
For the last three Strides for Stroke walks, we have held a Virtual Walk. People walked around their neighborhoods, playgrounds and yards and shared their experiences with us through photos and videos.
This year’s Strides for Stroke is going to be held on May 20 at 10 a.m. at Long Lake Regional Park in New Brighton, in Saint Cloud at CentraCare Plaza, and in Duluth at Miller Hill Mall. That’s three locations and three opportunities for you to put on your walking shoes and Stride for Stroke!
And, if you still want to participate virtually or you live out of state, you can do that as well! On the signup form, just indicate your choice of Virtual, Twin Cities, Duluth or Saint Cloud.
We’re so happy to be back, live and in person, and we can’t wait to see you there!
Our goals for Strides for Stroke remain unchanged. The purpose of this walk is to unite the Minnesota Stroke Community and raise funds for the Minnesota Stroke Association’s services and we are committed to that. We are all extremely saddened to have to shift to online once again, but we are heartened by the incredible participation we see year after year form our community.
