Welcome to the

2021 American Stroke Foundation Walk 'n Roll Event!

Saturday, September 11, 2021

Through its Next Step program, the American Stroke Foundation helps adult survivors of stroke reclaim hope and rebuild lives. If you know someone who has had a stroke, you know how hard that task is. Next Step programs are funded by people like you. So the Stroke Walk & Roll is very important to our participants and the communities we serve. For information about the program visit americanstroke.org.

The American Stroke Foundation would love to have you walk with us. If you’re not able to join us for the actual walk, you can walk virtually from wherever you are. Or, please consider making a donation.

We appreciate your support. Together we can make a difference!

Who We Are

A stroke takes its toll on the emotional well-being of survivors and caregivers. Let us give you practical solutions to regain balance and hope.

Social

Connecting with others who have experienced a stroke is extremely important. Our community can relate and wants to help.

Change Your Mind

If you've ever experienced a stroke, it can be extremely frustrating. When hospital care has ended, it may be difficult to know what to do next. We're here to show you that there is still a lot of growing to do. Your body, mind and spirit can heal and grow stronger. You know deep down you can get better. So do we. One of the greatest assets we can give you is a belief in you. It gets better.
