We have made the difficult decision this year to move our event to a Virtual Walk for Thought. As much as we want to get everyone together for Walk for Thought, we simply couldn't find a comfortable level of guaranteed safety that allowed us to host it in good conscience. At 10 a.m. on September 25, 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.

The Minnesota Stroke Association and Minnesota Brain Injury Alliance have made the difficult decision to cancel the 2021 Statewide Stroke Conference, previously scheduled for November 4. This decision has been made due to the continued safety concern associated with COVID-19. We do look forward to bringing you this conference in 2022.
The Minnesota Brain Injury Alliance provides free or low-cost educational opportunities for all people affected by brain injury and stroke, including family and friends, and training opportunities for the professionals who support them.
