Because of your incredible support, we have raised over $135,000 for Santa Clara County stroke awareness programs. 580 individuals joined us on May 5th at the San Jose Municipal Rose Garden to celebrate life and walk for those who have been touched by stroke.
We hope you will consider joining us next year as we will be expanding the walk so that everyone who wants to join in will have the opportunity to do so.

Why We Walk
Walking in the Fight Stroke Walk celebrates the lives of those who have been touched by stroke.
- We walk for those who cannot walk beside us.
- We walk because stroke is preventable & treatable.
- We walk to further stroke education & awareness in Santa Clara County.
Where Your Funds Go
All funds raised for the 2nd Annual Fight Stroke Walk stay here locally to improve stroke education in Santa Clara County, increasing the likelihood that your family, friends and loved ones will have better, stronger outcomes should they experience a stroke.
Thanks to your incredible support last year, we were able to train more than 500 first responders, including EMT’s, Paramedics, Police and Firefighters, to better recognize stroke in the field. With SAF training, Santa Clara County paramedics have identified stroke with greater than 90% accuracy and 100% of these patients were immediately taken to a Certified Stroke Center.
