Congratulations to all the participants in the MetroRehab Stroke Wellness Walk 2015! Current and former stroke patients joined with family and staff from the Sydney Stroke Rehabilitation Centre on the 17th of September to support National Stroke Week. Thank you to the National Stroke Foundation for supporting our local event and your campaign to raise awareness about stroke throughout Australia. All money raised will be donated to the Stroke Association of NSW who support stroke survivors and their families.
At the conclusion of the walk a reception was held on the balcony at MetroRehab Hospital. Anna Barlow the Stroke Coordinator praised the stroke survivors for the strength they have shown and the progress they have made in rehabilitation. She also acknowledged the support of families, carers and the staff at the hospital, their contribution and hard work is instrumental to recovery after stroke. MetroRehab Hospital looks forward to this becoming an annual event – see you all at Stroke Wellness Walk in 2016!
