The Baptist Health Foundation Paducah has just doubled the incentive to ride in the Spokes for Strokes bike tour on June 7.
The foundation will match all funds raised for the event, with a minimum donation of $10,000 guaranteed.
Baptist Health Paducah will host its third Spokes for Strokes bike tour on Saturday, June 7, to raise stroke awareness, along with funds for life-saving technologies and expanded stroke care services.
It will begin at 7 a.m. with registration at Baptist Health Imaging Center on the west end of campus at 2705 Kentucky Ave., followed by the tour at 8 a.m. Registration at active.com is $25 for an individual, $40 for couples and $50 for a family of four.
The bike tour offers 10-, 35- or 65-mile rides through southern McCracken, Marshall and Graves counties. Helmets are required.
Stroke is the one of the nation’s leading killers and the leading cause of serious, long-term disability. Baptist is Kentucky’s only certified stroke center west of Owensboro and a recent recipient of The Get With the Guidelines®–Stroke Gold Plus Quality Achievement Award for commitment and success in meeting national guidelines for stroke care.
