Judy's Run For Stroke Awareness Volunteers Meet

Bring Stroke Awareness Out Of The Shadows!

 Sunday, April 14th, a group of dedicated volunteers met at 9 AM at Sertino's Cafe, located at 133 West Main Street in Smithtown, to discuss (Judy's Run For Stroke Awareness) Mission, Vision, and Accomplishments.

 The Mission for Judy's Run for Stroke Awareness is to focus 100 percent of its donated funds, goods and services on efforts to promote public awareness toward stroke detection, and prevention.

 The Vision is to provide continuing education to the public and the media on the importance of stroke awareness and prevention. As Judy's Run for Awareness evolves, "we will continue to educate people on stroke incidents through education".

 Accomplishments:

The 5th Annual JRSA Run (our signature event)   

Provided stroke awareness and prevention information brochures at hospitals, doctor offices, health clubs, and running events

 Raised stroke awareness by speaking at Rotary Clubs, Knights of Columbus, and the Suffolk County Legislature.

 The illumination of the H. Lee Dennison building in 2011 in recognition for stroke awareness. The Dennison building will be illuminated for the entire week prior to Judy's Run for stroke awareness  on May 14th, through May 20th, 2012.

 Provided blood pressure screenings and informational material for stroke awareness at Judy's Run, Nesconset Street Fair, Smithtown Day, and other local community events.
