“I race to improve stroke prevention, outcomes, and education.”

—Dr. W. Alvin McElveen, Neurologist

By participating as a member of the 2014 New York City Triathlon Stroke Challenge team, you’ll have the opportunity to support compelling education and programs focused on prevention, treatment, rehabilitation and support for all impacted by stroke.
