The Sydney Stroke Rehabilitation Centre at MetroRehab Hospital was proud to host The 4th Annual Stroke Wellness Walk on Thursday 6 September 2018.
This event is held for all stroke patients and their families to celebrate National Stroke Week 2018, celebrate life after stroke, share experiences and partner with the community.
The Walk also raises funds for The Stroke Recovery Association of NSW which provides essential support for stroke survivors and carers in the community. We were fortunate to have Board Members, Lyn Glanfield and Jim Towers, from The Association, join our activities and support the occasion.
Conditions were fair with the rain luckily staying away and congratulations to Colin Silk for making it first over the line after a rigorous training schedule in the weeks before! We also had a number of inpatients complete the walk supported by Allied Health which was fabulous to see.
Prize giving and a well earned lunch rounded out a terrific time had by all.
A big thank you to our sponsor Independent Living Specialists.
Congratulations to all the participants! See you next year!
