RAISE Awards medallionMost Impactful Community Fundraising Event

Joe Romenesko

This award honors an individual or group making a unique and impactful effort to raising funds and stroke awareness in their community.

Mr. Romenesko, a stroke survivor, wakes up every morning intending to show the world that a stroke does not necessarily mean the end of a fulfilling and productive life. With some friends and fellow cyclists, he planned a fundraising event, then represented National Stroke Association by biking 42 miles in the 2012 TD Bank Five Boro Bike Tour. His event was attended by more than 800 people and raised more than $16,000 for stroke awareness.
