It is that time of year when we ask all members of the Stroke Recovery Chapter - KW to assist in the fundraising efforts. This past year has created new and exciting events including Dr. Shonk for World Stroke Day; many other guest speakers that made us laugh, think and learn what are the services and activities in Waterloo Region that everyone can get involved with.
Our Christmas Dinner brought together 45 members where we enjoyed a great meal, fellowship and a reduced ticket price which the Chapter was able to subsidized this year.
This past year also saw the development of a website (www.strokerecoverykw.ca), a wonderful monthly newsletter, excellent guest speakers, the renewal of the caregiver support group and new faces around the monthly meeting table.
The Leadership team has been meeting and creating an exciting 2016-2017 plan that will involve activities for the monthly meetings (both stroke survivors, caregivers and families) that provide sharing, support, learning and networking.
Stroke Recovery Chapter K-W does rely on donations and volunteer contributions to ensure stroke survivors and their families receive support and assistance when needed. The next year brings exciting opportunities and with your support in the WalkN’ Roll 2016 will assist in achieving our goals.
