For the third year in a row, Jenna Communications is hard at work planning the Delaware Valley Stroke Council’s 20th annual Strides for Stroke 5k on Sunday, June 8. We’re working to make this the biggest Strides for Stroke yet, and have many exciting events planned leading up to race day. Stay tuned for announcements for pre-race parties the week of June 2 by connecting with the Delaware Valley Stroke Council on Facebook and Twitter. Watch this segment of All Hart with Lauren Hart on WMCN-44 to see Toby Mazer, founder of the Delaware Valley Stroke Council, promoting Strides for Stroke, and listen to the KYW Morning Drive tomorrow, where Toby will be featured on Brad Segall’s Suburban Bureau segment.
Volunteers also are still needed for Strides for Stroke to help with logistics, fundraising, donation requests, stuffing goodie bags, registration and refreshments. We are looking for local businesses to serve as sponsors for the race, as well as to donate food items for the runners, and to encourage their employees to run!

Don’t forget stroke is the number one cause of adult disability as well as the fourth leading cause of death.
