 Join Our Stroke Challenge Team, Your Way!

Each year we support the stroke community through our Stroke Challenge team. We recognize that not everyone can run a marathon or travel a great distance to join one of our official charity partnerships. We invite you to join a growing group within the stroke community and participate on our Stroke Challenge team however you want—your event, your way!

There are hundreds of races every year that you can join. Whatever the distance or activity, National Stroke Association encourages your participation! Getting active for stroke not only raises awareness and funds but also reduces your own risk for stroke.

How It Works

  • Find an event in your community that fits your lifestyle and needs.
  • Create a personal fundraising page.
  • Share your page and stroke story with your friends and family and ask them to support your efforts on our Stroke Challenge team.
  • Let us know how we can help you. Contact us at events@stroke.org for more information.
