Hospital foundation to match Spokes for Stroke donations
The Western Baptist Hospital Foundation has just doubled the incentive to ride in the Spokes for Stroke bike tour.
The foundation will match all funds raised for the event. Western Baptist Hospital will host its first Spokes for Stroke bike tour on Saturday, June 2, to raise stroke awareness, along with funds for life-saving technologies and expanded stroke care services.
Spokes for Stroke will begin at 7 a.m. with registration at Noble Park’s Shelter 19, followed by the tour at 8 a.m. Advance registration at active.com is $25 for an individual, $40 for couples and $50 for a family for four.
The bike tour offers 10-, 35- or 60-mile rides through southern McCracken, Marshall and Graves counties. Helmets are required.
A 1-mile walk/ride on the Greenway trail, beginning at Noble Park, also will be available for stroke survivors, families, friends and caretakers for a donation.
Stroke is the one of the nation’s leading killers and the leading cause of serious, long-term disability. Western Baptist has the only certified primary stroke center in Kentucky west of Owensboro.
