According to recent data from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, 1 in 6 deaths from cardiovascular disease nationwide is due to a stroke. It's the fifth leading cause of death and serious long-term disability in the United States.

To raise awareness about the dangers and warning signs of a stroke, Essentia Health, through the Minnesota Stroke Association, is hosting a Strides for Stroke walk.

The walk will be held from 10-11 a.m. on Saturday, May 18, at the Miller Hill Mall, located at 1600 Miller Trunk Hwy. There, attendees can hear directly from stroke survivors about the signs and symptoms they experienced, as well as their recovery process. Essentia will also have medical experts on hand to talk about our highly advanced stroke program that allows our patients to receive the best care close to home.

The event is free to attend. Registration is preferred, but not required and can be done via this link. Snacks and refreshments will be provided and attendees will receive a free T-Shirt. All proceeds go to the Minnesota Stroke Association, a nonprofit with more than 30 years of experience elevating stroke awareness and offering vital services, including resources, advocacy outreach and case management.

Essentia Health-St. Mary’s Medical Center is a certified Advanced Thrombectomy Capable Stroke Center. As a nationally recognized stroke center, we have the ability to care for the most severe types of strokes and offer new treatments. Stroke care at St. Mary’s involves a patient-centered, multidisciplinary approach that speeds up treatment and reduces recovery times for patients, while affording them the resources needed to recover and reduce the risk of future strokes.
