TWU's Stroke Center Plans 'Walk'n Roll On'

4/23/02


DENTON — Stroke survivors and others will hit the trails Saturday, May 4, to help fellow survivors receive the treatment they need.

Raising funds and increasing awareness of stroke are the goals of The Stroke Center-Dallas's third annual “Walk'n Roll On” at Bachman Lake. The event raises money for scholarships for stroke survivors who are receiving treatment at the center, located on Texas Woman's University's Parkland campus.

Participants may choose between a one-mile or three-mile route, which will begin and end at Bachman Recreation Center, 2750 Bachman Drive. A power breakfast will be held at 9:30 a.m., with the race set to begin at 10 a.m. An awards ceremony will take place at 11 a.m.

Clients of The Stroke Center are among those taking part in the race.

“Many stroke survivors are unable to pay for services because of limited financial resources and/or restrictive insurance benefits,” said Dr. Jean Ford, TWU assistant clinical professor and director of The Stroke Center. “We provide scholarships to ensure that they receive necessary treatment.”

Organizers hope to raise $15,000 during this year's event.

The registration fee is $25, which includes a T-shirt. Those who are unable to attend may make a tax-deductible $25 donation to sponsor a stroke survivor. Checks for registration or donation should be made payable to The Stroke Center and be mailed to The Stroke Center-Dallas, 1810 Inwood Road, Dallas, Texas, 75235. For more information or registration forms, call (214) 689-6592 or e-mail .
