The 14th annual Strides for Strokes was a fantastic day!! Over 150 survivors of stroke, family and friends swarmed John Lawson Park and the West Vancouver Seawall raising money for NSSRC.
The weather was a little on the edge and we glanced nervously at the sky now and then. But, by lunchtime the sun was fully out and there to stay. Art, prizes, great coffee and amazing baking, auction prizes, a feisty warm-up, lunch, 50-50, merchandise to buy and new shirts and wristbands for all! Above all there was great conversation and the rich gift of such a wonderful community of people to be a part of. Vibrantly alive, walking and rolling, courageous survivors of stroke out there raising money for a cause they wholeheartedly believe in. Many thanks to all for being a part of this special day.
