2016 RAISE Award: Voter’s Choice

Jake Hulbert

Jake, now a teenager, has been involved in stroke awareness since his stroke at age 8. At 10 years old, he created an original video, “Darth Vader has a Stroke,” to bring awareness to stroke in a youthful, fun, and creative way. Over the years, his awareness efforts have included throwing out the first pitch at the season’s first major league baseball game for stroke awareness, partaking in talks about stroke at the capital, writing school papers, and creating an awareness video for social media. Jake exemplifies coming back strong after a stroke and works to raise stoke awareness for all ages.
