ATLANTA — Northside Hospital will host its fifth annual Stroke Awareness 5K Run/Walk on May 31 at 7 a.m., at the Northside/Interchange Professional Building, 5780 Peachtree Dunwoody Road in Atlanta. All proceeds benefit the stroke support groups at Northside Hospital.
Stroke support groups can benefit recovery by offering survivors and caregivers the opportunity to share feelings, ideas and resources alongside others who've experienced stroke.
Six years ago, Northside established two stroke support groups, which see approximately 25 patients and family members each month.
Money raised from the 5K will be used to provide more educational and support materials for these participants.
The Stroke 5K entry fee is $25 and all walkers and runners will receive a T-shirt at the finish.
