The White Rock/South Surrey Stroke Recovery Club will be hosting its annual walk-a-thon June 18 on the White Rock promenade.
Strides for Strokes will be held from 9 a.m. to noon at Spirit Bear Plaza on East Beach, with a goal to raise funds for a program that provides the club’s members with speech therapy, exercise rehabilitation, social activities, outings, speakers and caregiver support.
“By providing these opportunities, it enables the stroke survivors to restore dignity, self respect, self worth, independence and hope,” co-ordinator Gayl Hutchison said in a prepare statement.
The club is to move into White Rock’s Centre for Active Living this summer, and is to soon have programs and support accessible to stroke survivors five days a week – a significant increase from the two days of programming currently provided.
