Pixs: The Dr. Howard Mazer Memorial Strides for Strokes 5K Run/Walk
On Sunday, June 8, the Delaware Valley Stroke Council held its 20th annual Strides for Stroke
5K Run/Walk. The event, fully planned by Jenna Communications, was an
overwhelming success. Nearly 1,000 runners and walkers participated and
helped raise awareness for stroke, the fourth
leading cause of death and number one cause of adult disability. Also,
we owe a big thank you to all our sponsors, including: Parx Casino,
Trader Joe’s, ShopRite, Modells, Yoga Garden, EMS Entertainment, KIND
Bars and J&J Snack Foods. See Strides for Stroke coverage on
NBC 10 and 6abc.
