Dear National Stroke Supporter,
Three days from today, National Stroke Association's team of 29 brave individuals will participate in the ING NYC Marathon to raise funds and awareness for stroke! This is our first marathon team to participate in this event and we can't wait to be there to cheer them on! From marathon veterans to first time runners, our team is composed of stroke survivors, health care professionals, caregivers, and board and staff members. Each participant has a unique connection to stroke and a personal desire to make a difference.
We will be gathering to watch our runners but most importantly give them our support and encouragement. Please join us on Sunday, November 1 as we cheer them on! Drop by anytime after 10:30AM at the SW Corner of 89th and 1st Ave. (This is between miles 17 and 18.) Together let's encourage our runners and support them as they make a difference in the world of stroke!
We will have a few signs to identify our group but please bring your own so that not only our runners, but other spectators as well, will know we are there as we raise awareness of stroke.
W would love to see you there!
