Get ready for the sixth annual “Strides for Stroke” event!!! All proceeds from this race will go to the Utah Valley Stroke Association and will be used to support our mission of improving the quality of life and reducing the impact of stroke by providing education, resources, and community reintegration for everyone impacted by stroke. The Utah Valley Stroke Association is a group of healthcare and business professionals along with stroke survivors and caregivers, united to improve the quality of life and care for stroke survivors in Utah Valley.
Stroke is the number one leading cause of long term adult disability and the fifth leading cause of death in the United States. Most strokes take place in the presence of a family member and the damage done can be minimized with prompt care and expertise. Every year, there are ~800,000 people who suffer from stroke in the US.
Please come out for a run or walk and learn more about how you can help recognize and take action against stroke in your family, workplace and community. T-shirts will be given to each participant, a small prize to the group with the highest participation and other festivities and information will be available following the race. Take a stride for Stroke!
