World Stroke Day

The World Stroke Day is held on October 29 to reemphasize the serious nature and high rates of stroke, raise awareness of the prevention and treatment of the condition, and ensure better care and support for survivors.

A stroke can happen to anyone, at anytime, anywhere. #1in4 adults will have a stroke in their lifetime. Stroke is a leading cause of death and disability worldwide, but almost all strokes could be prevented.

Being active helps to reduce our risk. That’s why we’re asking people to Join the MoveMent and be a part of the world’s biggest dance chain on #WorldStrokeDay Oct 29th 2020.
