The 9th Annual Fight Stroke Walk is Now a Virtual Event
Join us for exercise, help build community awareness and education. SAF needs your help now more than ever.
As the Covid-19 virus continues to threaten our community, stroke remains to be the #1 disabler and #5 killer in the US.
Even though we are not able to walk side by side, we will be united in spirit and in support of this important cause.
Lookout for soon to be announced details of the day. If you have not yet registered, we hope you do and join in! We plan to make this a fun and interactive day, a chance to get out in your neighborhood or your favorite trail and share your experience with all of us.

All funds raised for this event stay locally to improve stroke education in Santa Clara County. SAF has implemented an aggressive public outreach targeting Santa Clara County residents via VTA bus advertising, movie theater trailers, print media, outdoor banner display, website and social media. We are making a direct impact in the community with our annual Fight Stroke Walk as well as stroke awareness presentations made to local service clubs and organizations. In addition, we partnered with the American Red Cross Silicon Valley’s First Aid Services Team (FAST), where we provide training and guidance on how to educate and screen the public for warning signs of stroke.Over 400 FAST medical first responders, nurses and physicians have been deployed to large community events such as the Gilroy Garlic Festival, San Jose Jazz Festival, Cinco De Mayo celebration and the Bay to Breakers race. Since 2013, we have provided more than 10,000 free blood pressure checks with in-depth follow-up conversations on stroke education resulting in hundreds of doctor referrals.
We are grateful for your support and commitment to the cause of stroke awareness. With your tax deductible contribution, lives are saved here in Santa Clara County—and that’s a tangible and meaningful return on your investment.
Thank you again for your gift to the Stroke Awareness Foundation.
