2021 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.
Since we’re not going to all be able to get together in one location, our event will be a Virtual Strides for Stroke. At 10 a.m. on Saturday, May 15, 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.
Why Strides for Stroke?
Stroke can happen to anyone, anywhere anytime. The Minnesota Stroke Association is here to provide help, hope and a voice to Minnesotans living with the effects of stroke and their loved ones. Funds raised at Strides for Stroke help ensure that Minnesotan’s affected by stroke can connect to critical support services.
