In March of 2016 our mother suffered a severe stroke that left her with limited mobility. The stroke has opened our families eyes to a better health lifestyle and we are bound and determined continue to support our mom's recovery. It has been a long, crueling 2 years for her but everyday she keeps on improving. This is the 2nd year we will be doing the stroke walk in honor of her. If you are in the DC area and would like to walk with us please do so! Here is to continued support and recovery for our mom, Rosalee! We love you and our proud of how far you have come! -Matt, Sarah and Katie plus their significant others :)
We are raising awareness and celebrating stroke survivors at the Washington D.C. Comeback Trail 5K - a charity event that supports the National Stroke Association. This 5K walk/fun-run empowers stroke survivors and caregivers to #ComebackStrong. I have set a fundraising goal to support the stroke rehabilitation and prevention efforts of the National Stroke Association.
Please support us, and the 7 million stroke survivors in the United Sates, by making a donation today. Together, we can empower survivors and caregivers as they come back strong from stroke.
