Get out there and get your
steps for stroke in!
50,000 Step Challenge
Proceeds from this year’s Steps for Stroke 50,000 step challenge will benefit the Rio Grande Valley Diabetes Association, an independent local, not for profit organization for Hidalgo County, Texas, that is tailored to providing education and prevention for people affected by diabetes.
What does diabetes have to do with strokes? Diabetes can increase your risk for many health conditions, including stroke. In general, people with diabetes are 1.5 times more likely to have a stroke than people without diabetes, according to the American Diabetes Association.
The Rio Grande Valley Diabetes Association will be working closely with South Texas Health System to help raise awareness for stroke in the community.
