This award honors an individual making a commitment to raising stroke awareness on a local or national level.
|Almost three years ago, Ms. Howard started the Warrior Walk (now known as Stampede for Stroke), walking 11.8 miles from the hospital where she was first treated for her stroke to the hospital where she received outpatient treatment. She is also the founder of ABC Brigade, an organization committed to raising awareness about stroke prevention and educating stroke survivors and their families that there is life after stroke. The organization holds an annual stroke fair with educational booths, health screenings and speakers. Learn more about ABC Brigade at www.abcbrigade.org.||
