2018 Comeback Trail - Houston

Houston Aphasia Recovery Center (HARC)

We are raising aphasia awareness and celebrating stroke survivors at Houston Comeback Trail 5K - a charity event that supports the National Stroke Association. This 5K walk/fun-run empowers stroke survivors and caregivers to #ComebackStrong. We've set a fundraising goal to support the stroke rehabilitation and prevention efforts of the National Stroke Association.

Please support our team, and the 2-3 million persons with aphasia 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.
