Most Impactful Community Fundraising Event
Somers Walk for Stroke
award honors an individual or group making a unique and impactful effort to
raising funds and stroke awareness in their community.
Somers Walk for Stroke is a 3-mile walk through the hills of Somers, NY. Organized
by two sisters, Lisa Serio and Valerie Goodwin, impacted by their mother’s stroke
four years ago, this event has been an inspiration to surrounding communities
wanting to hold their own events. Their annual event participants have grown in
number each year and, over the past three years, they have raised over $30,000.
Somers Walk for Stroke not only raises money but also brings the entire
community together to raise stroke awareness.
