This spring, Houston Methodist Hospital hosted the fifth annual Stride4Stroke 5K Run & Walk to promote education and awareness of stroke symptoms, treatment, prevention and research. Individuals and families came together on March 5, 2011, at Rice University to participate in the event, which included activities for participants of all ages, as well as a picnic-style lunch. The funds raised from this event over the past five years have enabled Houston Methodist to educate Houstonians more about stroke and stroke prevention.
Houston Methodist will extend its commitment to stroke education and outreach with the sixth annual Stride4Stroke 5K Run & Walk scheduled for March 3, 2012. To learn more or participate in the 2012 race, visit www.methodiststride4stroke.com.
