To Do: 5K Run/Walk to Help Stroke Victims

Strides for Stroke comes to the Art Museum.

If running a 5K can help somebody else, why not do it? The 19th Annual Dr. Howard Mazer Memorial Strides for Stroke is a community event that helps the Delaware Valley Stroke Council (DVSC) “provide education and research into the causes, treatment and prevention of stroke.” So far, DVSC has helped over 20 hospitals in Pennsylvania and New Jersey become Joint Commission Certified Primary Stroke Centers to help stroke patients. That, my friends, is awesome.

The run starts bright and early on Sunday, June 9th with registration at 7 a.m. and the run/walk starting at 8:30 at the steps of the Philadelphia Museum of Art. Register here as an individual runner or start a team to get your friends in on the fun.

$25 race entry plus a $2.50 sign-up fee, June 9th at 7 a.m., Philadelphia Museum of Art, 2600 Benjamin Franklin Pwky, Philadelphia.
