Stroke survivors everywhere, whose experience will be recognized on World Stroke Day on October 29, 2021, will have better access to the support they need thanks to our exciting new partnership with March of Dimes Canada’s After Stroke program. Stroke survivors have told us they need support, they need tools, peer support, opportunities for skills development and exercise, and information to address the emotional and practical challenges of their unique journey. This partnership with Motion will combine our strengths and expertise to benefit stroke survivors and their families across the country. Partnerships like this are crucial to growing our programs and services and reaching more stroke survivors so they can optimize their recovery, nobody should have to navigate life after stroke alone. CHRISTINA SPERLING, DIRECTOR OF COMMUNITY PROGRAMS & AFTER STROKE AT MARCH OF DIMES CANADA We, Motion, will be making a financial contribution over the coming year to the After Stroke program. We’ll also be part of delivering educational events to those who have been impacted by stroke and participate in community-based fundraisers in support of the After Stroke program. It is Motion’s vision to make life accessible for everyone, as a long-time partner of March of Dimes, we feel this sponsorship is a critical opportunity to make a direct impact on the quality of life of stroke survivors and their families.
