Strides For Stroke: Our Involvement
At Compassionate Assistance, our goal is to provide you with the highest quality, compassionate in-home personal care. We care deeply about those who are chronically ill, disabled or injured, as well as their families. Many of our clients have had a stroke in the recent or far-off past. This has affected both their ability to live independently as well as obtain quality care in the home when their family members need time to rest.
This year, to represent our clients, we are one of the sponsors at Strides for Stroke, a community event to raise awareness and funds for the National Stroke Association with the goal of reducing the incidence or impact of a stroke.
According to Strides For Stroke, Stroke is the 5th leading cause of death in the U.S. and a leading cause of adult disability. There are more than 7 million stroke survivors.
About The Event:
This event is organized by the BNI Networking Ninjas, who is teaming up with the National Stroke Association. Strides For Stroke was originally founded after one of the original members’ Mother passed away very suddenly to a stroke. Strides for Stroke says, “Together we will gather in honor of the stroke community to raise awareness and funds with the goal of reducing the incidence of impact of stroke.”
True to our character of dedication and personal care, our involvement goes beyond cutting a check. We will be speaking about the families we help who have been affected by a stroke. We will also provide information about strokes to promote awareness.
The event is open to anyone who wants to donate or participate. It will be hosted at El Dorado Park in Scottsdale, Arizona on May 20th at 8:30 a.m.
The itinerary for the morning is to walk and/or run around the El Dorado Park in Scottsdale, Arizona. All proceeds will support the National Stroke Association. After the “race” is over, there will be a silent auction. There will also be a DJ, the Detroit Coney Cruiser Food Truck, games, a Bounce House for the kiddos, and much more!

May is Stroke Awareness Month. Even if you choose not to participate in this event or are unable to, there are many other ways to support those who have suffered from a stroke. Promote awareness during Stroke Awareness Month!
