Going the Distance for Mercy's Stroke Program

The Foundation extends a big "THANK YOU" to the 109 participants who stepped up in support of Mercy's Virtual 5K Stroke Awareness Run. Because of your generosity, $3,375.00 was raised, benefiting our Certified Primary Stroke Center, which has been awarded the Gold Seal of Approval from the Joint Commission. 

Participants enjoyed "doing the 5K their way," opting to complete their fun run through various methods of exercise. Check out participant 5K accomplishments below! 

The race may be over, but it's never too late to show your support with a gift to the Stroke Program fund! To make your gift today, click the blue "Donate Now" button at the top, right-hand side of this page!
