2022 Strides for Stroke
May 21 @ 10:00 am - 12:00 pm
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.
Unfortunately, there has been a recent surge in positive COVID-19 cases in our community and the Minnesota Stroke Association staff has experienced the affects from that surge. Because of this, we have made the incredibly difficult decision to, once again, move from an in person walk to a virtual walk. As saddened as we are to have to make this decision, we feel like this is in the best interest for all involved.
So, what does this mean for Saturday?
For Twin Cities/New Brighton teams, Team Captains will be able to pick up their T-shirts for their teams (if they have registered their walkers) on Friday, May 20, from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. at our office (2277 HWY 36 W, Roseville, MN 55113), or on Saturday, May 21, between 8:30 and 9:30 a.m. at Long Lake Regional Park at the Pavilion.
We will have news on the Duluth and St. Cloud shirts as information becomes available.
The Kick Off to Strides for Stroke will take place at 9:45 a.m. However, by necessity, it will be moved to our website. Check strokemn.org for our Kick Off messaging and for the tribute to this year’s honorees.
The Virtual Strides for Stroke Walk is, of course, still continuing. We strongly encourage everyone to walk with their teams at home or in the park and to send pictures and videos to us at strokemn.org/upload/. Just like the last two years, as photos come in, we will be sharing them on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram. You can even start uploading pictures and videos today. Make sure and include team names and any pertinent information in the description.
If you have donations that you were planning to turn in at the walk, please feel free to drop those donations off when you pick up your T-shirts.
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.
Thank you for your understanding and support. We’ll see your faces on Saturday.
