Sadly, this has been another tragic week in Minnesota, particularly tragic for the BIPOC community. Daunte Wright was senselessly killed by the police during the Chauvin trial when so many are still incredibly traumatized by the death of George Floyd and acts of violence against the Asian community. The Minnesota Brain Injury Alliance condemns racism and violence. During these trying times we need to continue to work together.

 


The Minnesota Stroke Association annual Strides for Stroke even exemplifies the notion of an active stroke community. Not only does it allow us to honor stroke survivors and walk in solidarity with one another, it also raises stroke awareness and helps fund programs that benefit Minnesotans who live with the effects of stroke. Strides for Stroke demonstrates that stroke is not an ending. The hundreds of people walking together for a common cause is a beautiful picture of the power of community and the possibilities it represents - for survivors, their families and the people around them.

The 2021 Strides for Stroke will place on Saturday, May 15 all around Minnesota as a virtual event. Register and donate today!
